Genre/Influences: Experimental, minimal-electro.
Format: Digital, CD.
Content: The work features 7 tracks, which are dealing with a fascination for sound/noise creation. “Framing” sounds miles away from ‘traditional’ song structures, but appears to be an experimental work. The tracks are all into minimal-electronic treatments featuring slow drones, repetitive noisy- and other deep vibrating loops, boiling sound waves and ambient atmospheres. This could be the soundtrack for an abstract film or documentary.
+ + + : I like the minimal approach of this duo. They clearly like to decompose- and create sounds. The result has something of chemistry instead of pure music. But there also is a tormented sphere hanging over the work. I like “Open Up” for its deep, resonating sound treatment and “Mr. Blue Brain”, which has been meticulously built up.
– – – : The Noise In Silence doesn’t compose the most accessible electronic music you might imagine. It has something abstract and hard to seize.
Conclusion: I have some mixed emotions listening to this album; being fascinated through the minimal approach, but still a bit skeptical because of the experimental format.
Best songs: “Open Up”, “Mr. Blue Brain”.
