Twelfth Night; or, What You Will, the third collaboration between director Aleksandar Popovski and Silence, takes place in Illyria, an imaginary land in which love and cross-dressing run amok. This intrepid staging of Shakespeare's classic comedy features an inspired cast led by Bojan Navojec, Alma Prica and Olga Pakalović.

In order to complement the play's 1980's-inspired costumography and scenography (the latter utilizes fluorescent ropes to mimick - quite ingeniously - the graphics of early personal computers), Silence opted for electronic music redolent of Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre and other synth pioneers. Using the Roland TR-606 and TR-808 drum machines and a handful of vintage synthesizers, the duet recorded six instrumentals and one song (sung live by Alma Prica). However, it was the duet's orgiastic use of Vocoders that provided the score's distinctive sound. The play also features a selection of older recordings.
