There really isn't much to go on here, except for the source code.

The Sound of Silence

What do we have to go on? Well, the title is a start: The Sound of Silence. Previous pages had music, like Salty. This one doesn't.

A little trial and error and the "Wav" hint in the comment, leads to TheSoundOfSilence.wav.

Ride The Wav

We've been here before. The sounds are DTMF and we have a decoder. Pay attention to the spaces between the notes:

1235 1 235 235 2345 134 1345 145 156 1234 134

Go On

A sequence of numbers, each formed of sorted digits between 1 and 6. Given that, the first could be equally well represented like 123.5. or ***.*. or...

12 1. .2 .2 .2 1. 1. 1. 1. 12 1.
3. .. 3. 3. 34 34 34 .4 .. 34 34
5. .. 5. 5. 5. .. 5. 5. 56 .. ..

That's obviously Braille. Decode with Rumkin or dcode. But be careful, there is a standard numbering scheme for Braille, and this isn't it. The dots are numbered:

14
25
36

The Braille decodes to "PASSTHROUGH". Add that to the URL, and move on to Into The Abyss.
