The Broken Silence
Brian Parnham
2010 Floating Point Records (CD)

Ambient-electronic artist Brian Parnham has created a series of highly nuanced, beautifully recorded evocative tribal-ambient releases over the years, including MANTLE on our own steveroach.com label. After 10 years, his first official solo release has been re-released in a new way. Originally composed and recorded between December 1999 and April 2000, the original source and pre-master files were revisited, enhanced and remixed. A few brushstrokes were added and a melted down album mix "Forged From Silence" was created in March 2010. The result is a release that feels like it's from the near future, steeped in a heat-altered landscape that effectively pulls you in deeper with each listen. An auspcious release that stands the test of time, and a vital piece of tribal-ambient magic.

THE BROKEN SILENCE displays an important artistic developmental phase for Brian Parnham. First released as a limited edition, the original album contained three distinct tracks that explored hazy, swirling trance grooves, extended free-form, flowing textures and tribal percussive rhythms expressing surreal desert vistas and the long roads that lead you to and from these places of allure. Highly recommended.

Instrumentation: digital synthesizers, processing, sequencing, samples, loops, didgeridoo, chatter stik, clay pot, voices, whispers, ocarinas, various percussion, shortwave and trace elements.
