I struggle a little bit with the concept of a piece which you can't quite hear as too many years of sitting in front of the percussion section in orchestras has had it's toll on my eardrums. Personally, I like my music to be of a volume that I can actually hear it.
But it's always good to push the boundaries and open a debate about music.
Martino Panizza (harp) and Alice Purton (cello)
Charlie Sdraulig, hush (2011-12)

N.B. This work is extremely soft. Where possible, try to listen to this piece in a quiet environment on a good set of speakers or with headphones.
