(See Music figures).
Moment of silence in music. It can have a determined or an undetermined duration (corona). When a whole rest appears as the only sign in a bar of any value it means it is empty, that is, there is a rest as long as the duration of the whole measure.
A series of empty bars is generally abbreviated into a single one, indicated with a long tract with above the number corresponding to the number of bars themselves in bold. As for notes, the dot (value dot), when situated on the right of the rest sign, improves the value of the latter of its half. An undetermined rest is indicated with the sign of the corona … above or below any sign of determined rest and its duration is left free to his player, anyway keeping a relationship with the proper value of the rest sign.
