THE ENSEMBLE 

The Prague Quiet Music Collective was established with the aim
of presenting music that pays heightened attention to silence, subtle details of sound and the passing of time. We believe that in our hurried epoch of the "economy of attention" and stimulus overload, there is much sense to be found in a quieting that allows us to glimpse the beauty of slowness, impermanence, fragility and detail. We give equal attention to concert programming and to creating a unique environment
for the listening experience. One of our aims is to commission new pieces to include in our repertoire.

"The perfect music is without sound."
– Tao te ching
