In a concert, "the silence following Mozart is still by Mozart"
I'm just gonna drop a couple of things here without overthinking it: - my ears shut themselves when they feel like: I don't even try to understand what speakers say at stations or airports (almost 100% chance it's not for me), I can learn or write with the radio talking... - while I am quite "good public" and like very different music styles, there is unfortunately still tons of music I can't stand ; i was known in my previous job for powering-off radios and stealing the remote control just in case. I listen much rather to my own car's motor than to bad radio. - I participated once in an art workshop about city sounds and... I proposed a part about silence - one of my previous job was to get international youngsters with difficult backgrounds to enjoy working together towards a common goal ; when visiting Berlin I brought them usually in small groups to the fantastic room of silence in Brandenburger Tor
I've never been on Reddit because when I had some time to consume there used to be a great french-speaking site doing the job and filling my needs (called kopikol for whoever cares). Then I pretty much lost time for that active passiveness.
I was made aware of Hacker News (HN) in 2011 by someone who knew I was into web creation ; and from there I once discovered Hubski, which happened to be much broader than HN and at the same time very quiet comment-wise (any reddit is filled with 500 comments and dare I say, I've felt like Hubski is on a trench since that day redditors came en masse and for that reason am participating way less).

So finally I got a chance to listen to those 30s. Very nice ; thanks for posting !
In grad school I heard "always aim for the highest" and I found it the best piece of advice later. If I had only wished to be what I became, I guess I would be even much lower...
I've always loved that one too (and love Tagore overall)!
