Before he formed Forever Einstein, Vrtacek (also known as Charles 'Chuck' O'Meara) released several solo discs. Silent Heaven puts his solo albums, Learning to Be Silent and When Heaven Comes to Town,
into one special album. Very different from Einstein, the music here is
quiet, sober, introspective, sometimes playful, and often somewhat
dark. O'Meara (March 13, 1953–October 20, 2018) died in 2018 at age 65.
"It may be preferable to meditate in a quiet room, but we seldom find ourselves in quiet rooms...so, always the same question: how to find silence in the midst of chaos?" - C.W. Vrtacek
