Cherry Beach Project - Silo11 [Mystery Sea - 2007]

Silo 11 is built around slowly evolving and dissolving drones and ambience, with a distinctive bleak mysterious air about it. Like walking along a changeless grey landscape made up of derelict industrial units and decaying metal structures & expecting strange figures to suddenly appear.

It’s the work young Canadian Joda Clément composer with help from his friend Nigel Craig. The pair merges together creaking organic and steel soundworks, with ambient and drone haze emmitted from both analogue and digital instruments. Featuring forty minutes of monochrome sound worlds, split into six untitled tracks, but really it feels like one long piece. Very little happens in the conventional musical sense, sure you have mountain and valleys of greying sound, but more than anything this is about building an atmosphere that you can almost see your breath in. It starts & finishes in much  the manner, just sliding barely into being & equally just sliding out once more into barely re-settling sound air.

Another effective  mix of instrumental and found sound ambience and drone craft from the Mystery sea label. Like their other releases it's  ltd to 100 copies- meaning if this sounds your cup of bleak tea, go get it quick.
