Synopsis:

“From Music into Silence” documentary is the story of a man who changed his life to offer peace and calmness to people.

For the last 23 years, Peter Roberts has the most unusual job in Australia. He is the only Australian Music Thanatologist. He plays the harp for people who are facing their last moments of life. Peter’s focus is on the dying process and he helps people to die in peace when often everyone wants them to stay.

With the spirit of the Persian poet “Rumi” running through his veins; Peter has one last task to do before he retires.



Why are you so afraid of silence,

silence is the root of everything.

If you spiral into its void,

a hundred voices

will thunder messages

you long to hear.

-Rumi
