THE FIRST END OF THE WORLD SURVIVORS MEETING
Acoustic performance
Gallus Hall, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana
Recorded live on January 27th 2014 by RTV Slovenia

In 2013, Silence and the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra decided to mark the first anniversary of the Concert for the End of the World by reprising the joint performance.

The reprise would become Silence's biggest and most elaborate performance to date. Attended by nearly 1400 survivors, the First End of the World Survivors Meeting featured 90 minutes of orchestral music, monumental visuals (generated live by Izland), a post-apocalyptic tap dancer (Mitja Popovski) and four deliciously gossipy rats with a soft spot for Samuel Beckett (Beton Ltd.).

Once again, Silence performed with pianist Igor Vicentic, conductor Tomislav Facini and the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra. Four additional songs (Vihar, vihar, Silver Bloom, Runalong and Kraljestvo macjih oci) were orchestrated for the occasion.

The concert was broadcast live by the Val 202 radio station. It was also filmed and broadcast by the Slovene National Television.
