Brian Harnetty - Silent City (CD)

$ 15.95


Release Date: 08/11/09

Soundsculptor Brian Harnetty mixes three centuries of sound into one incredible release.

Brian Harnetty is an Ohio-based musician, educator and artist, whose work involves typically overlooked elements of sound. Many of his pieces transform found materials- including field recordings, transcriptions, and historic recordings- into personal and often socio-cultural worlds. His music and installations have been performed and exhibited in the U.S. and Europe. SILENT CITY is the follow-up to his incredible '07 work AMERICAN WINTER (ALP180CD), which is rooted in recordings & transcriptions made available to Brian through a residency with the APPALACHIAN FOLK ARCHIVE (Berea, KY). The result often feels like a gently compelling collision of pure, real-deal 'Holler Music' & the deftness of Morton Feldman. Very much in a kindred-spirit, SILENT CITY features Will Oldham (Palace Brothers, Bonnie Prince Billy, Boxhead Ensemble) on vocals, and is a fascinating, compelling collaboration that mixes the last three centuries into one beautifully haunting, cryptic flow of idea-sound.
