The Promises of Silence

This compilation was created based upon the theme: "The perception and intimate elaborations of music in connection with nature" > Quiet music,atmospheres and soundscapes by: Hybryds, Djen Ajakan Shean, Steve Roach,VidnaObmana, Jeff Greinke, Art of Primitive Sound, Ora, Alio Die, Robert Rich,Saffron Wood, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, Temps Perdu?, Ashley/Story.

An excellent multi-artistcollection compiled by Alio Die from 1993, this organic soundscape projectincludes Dwight Ashley and Tim Story, Temps Perdu?, Vidna Obmana, Jeff Greinke,Black Tape For a Blue Girl, Steve Roach, Art of Primitive Sound, Alio Die,Robert Rich and others.

Even thirteen years later, it seems bizarre that this fine compilation was available in relatively mainstream record shops.
This audio document may prove to be the album that best introduced early ritual ambient to US ears.A more solid track list in this subgenre of ambient music can't possibly be found.Outstanding work by all artists involved and I can't think of a better way todip into the microworld of modern psychoactive ambient music.

 

This compilation is a 78-minute overview of atmospheric and sampled/textural dark Ambient musics, lost somewhere between unidentified subterranean ice caves and a shimmering deserts.
"Promises of Silence is, yes, a very dark album at times, both darkness and silence hold promises worth discovering. Some of those great discoveries can be found here." (I/E MAGAZINE)
