Barney McAll returns with his signature musicality for the beautifully amazing - with Gian Slater, Chris Hale, Ben Vanderwal, Dan West and New Yorker Nir Felder.
'Sylent Running' experiments with relationships between silence and non-silence, beauty and its opposites, through-composed melodies and improvisation, song crafting and abstraction, pristine acoustics and botched, 'confused robot' electronics. Tiny insect-like beats are pitted against thunder claps. Single chords may be left to resonate to the point of awkward.
Barney McAll, co-composer and pianist, has performed internationally with a veritable who's who of improvised music and continues to seek new and fertile musical expression with this ensemble of New York and Australian based musicians.
The ghostly beauty of Gian Slater's voice and lyrics are given an ever changing compositional and sonic backdrop that could be described as visual, subterranean, avant pop, subversive, hypnotic free jazz.
