Lea Cummings-Revelations From The New silence Vol. 1

silence 1.zip

What initially begin as immense, heavy sounds move into subtle electronic drones on this excellent, five-piece CDR by experimental musician Lea Cummings. Two of the release’s biggest strengths lie in its layering of different timbres-within-timbres and in its build up of tension and then descent into relief from that tension; just listening to the movement from the album’s first to its second track is a major shift in mood, going from bleak and overwhelming, to restrained–as from its fourth to its final, fifth track, the sound goes from peaceful and beautiful to apprehensive, creating a circular feeling to the arc of the disc’s overall sound. On one of the best tracks presented here, “The Vorticular Mechanics of the Aether,” a more ambient approach is taken in composition, incorporating muted harmonies and wraithlike single notes above those harmonies.
