Presenting ... Swirl (waag_rel082) by Cousin Silas
I am particularly fond of Cousin Silas' longform pieces. Whether it is his dronescapes or the rerelease of Owlers Wood, Cousin Silas knows how to make longform music that is both interesting and engaging rather than monotonous and dull. He has raised the bar, at least for me, and graciously keeps feeding what is developing into an insatiable hunger for more.
“Swirl (waag_rel082)” is his latest longform creation, one that explores the vastness of space and time within its 78 minute duration. Sounds appear … a piano ... a guitar ... a heavenly choir … and then are gone like the wisps of a long-forgotten dream that fade into the ether. It all is rather hypnotic but then that’s what I’ve come to expect from Cousin Silas and his longform creations … music that captivates the soul and let’s the listener drift to wherever it is they drift to.
I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I have.
