I believe everyone who has been in conflict with someone, particularly a loved one, has
experienced the smothering silence. No more words get exchanged at this point, and so it
envelops you, making you feel bad. It’s in these moments when it’s important to remember
that the easiest way to resolve the conflict is going in to talk with the person – from
that point forward, the silence becomes music.

Acoustic and warm, the song called “Silence is Music” is smooth and soothing, just like
the warm embrace after a bad argument is settled. Soft guitar melodies, jazzy percussion,
and quiet vocals build up a calm, soulful atmosphere, where hope and gratitude can bloom
comfortably, and there is no more space left for hurting feelings. “Silence is Music” is
a serene ode for nourishing dialogue and self-acceptance, setting itself as a reminder
that the best way to overcome the crushing bad feelings is reaching out.

Florie’s tender vocals are joined by those of Franck Biyong, a Cameroonian guitarist.
The duo co-wrote the song, aiming to bring out the anxious feeling so common in such
situations, and using delicate instrumentation as well as their singing voices to
produce a layer of solace. Magical strings were added to the mix by Argentinian
double bass player Lila Horovitz and Canadian cellist Tess Crowther.
