Drifting In Silence - Dawn
Drifting In Silence - DAWN reaffirms its ambient roots. Absent from this album are the complex, driving percussions.
Absence of drums does not mean, however, absence of rhythm. This music is carefully constructed from layers of pulse-beats interpenetrated with ethereal, diaphanous counter-harmonies.
This Drifting in Silence interpretation allows Stembridge's multi-timbred guitar work to rise to the fore, embedded and informed by, but separate from the drifting aethers of keyboard.
The result is a translucent airiness that, rather than remaining lost in the chiaroscuro of self-reflection, illuminates it from within.
