Sounds of Silent
Unpredictable Music For Unreliable Times

Where innovative music of the past and the future meet without barriers.
A place where acoustic meets electronic, where melody and harmony join electro beats blurring musical genre. The artists on this compilation represent the core bands and artists originally signed to Silent Recordings.
All tracks mix the electronic with the acoustic and most, if not all tracks, were recorded by the bands live-to-tape in Sydney's finest sound studios.
Musical genres haunt today's musical marketplace, forcing many artists to work within seemingly defined rules and guidelines perceived to be necessary for their music to be relevant. Why is this too often the case? Why is music becoming increasingly another marketing tool for advertising space on mainstream media broadcasters? Why do most major record labels refer to music simply as 'product' that seems to be cut, dried and processed for the plastic teeth of today's consumer society? We refuse to be silent!

Here's what the media have to say...

“I recently discovered you from a 2001 album Sounds of Silence 1.0. Such a unique feeling, great, fantastic THANK YOU! May your flag fly high and free in its own breeze.”
(David Jones, September 2011)

"The CD cover proclaims that the first compilation from Silent Recordings is "unpredictable music for unreliable times." Indeed, the six artists featured on the CD deliver everything from ambient mood pieces and lush string arrangements to up-tempo funk grooves."
(City Weekly)
"This fusion of electronic and acoustic destroys the myth that remixes render organic originals soulless."
(7/10, Juice Magazine)
