Silence is a fascinating topic among ambient musicians. We’re obsessed with it, we write songs about it, and paradoxically not many of those songs contain much silence. It’s paradoxical, almost but not quite an oxymoron… and there’s a lot of good music on the subject.
This week, I begin a two-week descent into the sounds we sense when seeking silence. We’ll feature music by Cousin Silas, Christopher Alvarado, Palancar, Wolfgang Gsell, Mike Andrews, Lutz Thuns, Syndromeda, Numina, Juta Takahashi, Max Corbacho, Candy Lozier, and Phillip Wilkerson.
As always, the fun begins at 9/8/7/6 PM on https://radiospiral.net, and in the Orlov sim in Second Life (we’ll be upstairs in the saloon again… still huddled around the potbellied stove to stay warm). See you there!
