They installed recording equipment inside the building on a half-hour. The only sounds that can be heard on the CD, it is rare creaking wooden benches, steps and the distant rumble of machines. After the sale of discs during a recent open house, held at the church, on the CD-ROM began receiving orders from as far away as Germany, Austria and Ghana.
74-year-old church member Roger Bing, who gave the idea, said: "The church was planning an open house and would like it to something different from last year's event to attract more people. Our church has a good recording equipment, so we decided to make a 30-minute CD, recording silence. This is similar to the silence with some background noise. On record there are some background noise, but I think that even for the best. If the record was absolute silence, people would be bored. So, if you listen carefully, you can hear the creaking of benches, steps and distant rumble of machinery, moving on the freeway. People who bought this CD say that they really enjoyed it. In our time, it seems, our whole life is made up of noise and people may want to sit down and just be a little peace and quiet. This drive is perfect for that and people say that it is very relaxing. Some have also used our drive for meditation. "
Doktorr Andrew Myers of St. Peter's Church said: "This is a sacred place of the 800-year history and the silence is beautiful and majestic. When we discussed this idea, they came to an agreement that soothing silence of the church is different from the usual silence in your house and I'm very happy that the drive has been so popular. At first, some were skeptical, but in the end, I think everyone agreed that it was a very good idea. "
