'In this article, I would like to talk about sound and silence and the ways in which they create meaning, as part of the fabric of elements in theatre. I will talk about the choices that we, the artists, make in the process in order to articulate the shape and meaning through sound. I argue that music essentially contributes t the shaping of meaning, and that it does this in conversation with the performers - it is relational.' (Author's introduction)
