The Sound of Silence was originally released by Simon & Garfunkel on their 1964 album Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. and a remixed version was released as a single the following year. It tells of a vision about the problems of society: of isolation; of people going through the motions of conversation but with no communication; of the worship of consumerism;, and proposes that the answer lies within the simple wisdom of the disenfranchised. This version from Jadyn is based on both the original and the 2015 cover by the heavy metal band Disturbed, with a heavy dose of Jadyn‘s own interpretation. The first 2 verses are sung through the innocence of a young child’s voice but for the 3rd verse everything kicks up a couple of notches when Jadyn is joined by Sina on drums and the music turns heavy and Jadyn‘s voice matches the increased power of the music as she blasts out the warning to the world, and by the 4th verse the child has gone and is replaced by the prophet from on high castigating the fallen, followed by the incredible final verse that starts off at an even higher level and brings you back only to drop to a sublime, gentle a cappello ending for the last 3 words and a faint echo of the arpeggio accompaniment to allow you to return back to the mundane world.
