Question What is it called when music cuts to silence?

What is it called when music cuts to silence?

Preferably as in at the end of a song, but for my purposes the term for a bit of silence in a song works to.

Well if you mean suddenly then it Rest would cover it. But if you mean a semi gradual start or stop to a song maybe a fade in or fade out?

In classical music, you might call a non-ending pause a caesura.

But then, you're likely not looking for classical terminology. A break, maybe? Do you have any musical example of what it is you're thinking?

It would be called a punch if it were in the middle. But at the end I guess, it's called "play till it fades"
