Reseña de álbum

Silence V is a very atmospheric landscape, ambient in production value, and relatively sparse in instrumentation. Making use of female vocals and a handful of other organic-sounding samples, Pete Namlook avoids his usual arsenal of keyboards and effects, giving fewer (and more worldly) elements extra room to breathe. "Asbendos" evokes images of a slow-motion sandstorm in Morocco, like Peter Gabriel's Passion soundtrack without all the percussive grit. Its warm basslines and lilting baritone flute solos hover among an open chord of strings. "While Angels Sleep" is an ethereal wash of breathy vocals and heavy droplets of bass keys; it's the subconscious score to a salt tank meditation, reminiscent of Brian Eno's fantastically sparse album Neroli. "Master of the Sky" is the most futuristic passage of suspended animation. It hangs chords of synthetic vapors in the air, further elaborated upon by some Dark Side of the Moog-style vintage solos. Omnipotent whispers and a hint of percussion escort you through the final minutes of this piece, and it's really the only track that calls attention to its foundation in electronics. "Ancient Beauty" spins a ghostly web of the aforementioned vocals, while adding a distant drum that gives the piece a majestic sort of weight during the second half. "Picnic" closes the disc, spreading a flickering canvas of birdsong over light keyboards and simple shifting chords. Some crisp electric guitar and subdued beats help build this track toward the album's melodic high point, and the most contemporary one at that. The compositional structure on much of this CD rewards the patient listener. It hypnotizes and depressurizes, without being the uninspired new age drivel that some people might confuse this with. There is a reverent stillness that Pete Namlook subscribes to here, like the musical foundation of a sacred place — calm and mysterious. He excels at these sorts of projects, and Silence V is one in particular that should not go unnoticed.

Silence V is gusty, eery.

Silence V is consistently gusty and spiritually oriented. -- Asbendos features circular, airy, light synth tones orbiting around a deep pipe organ theme. The effect is somber intrigue in the sky. -- While Angels Sleep is softly lilting, female voices humming, and not much else, evoking light clouds and promoting meditation. -- In Master of the Sky, breezy synthesizer keyboard tones continue and advance the lofty theme, while an eery, faintly garbled male voice identifies with the wind. -- Ancient Beauty combines more of the deep pipe organ with the light, female humming, then adds a slow, distant, ceremonious drumming. -- Picnic seems to try to bring the listener down from the sky: a field of birds chirp while some kind of retro, eletcric piano plays out a simple, slow, tick-tock riff, eventually joined by a light melody on an echoing guitar. I'm not one who likes to come down to the ground much, yet I like a fair amount of direction, evolution, and dynamism, so Asbendos and Master of the Sky are the tracks on this album that stick with me.

Ambient at its best

This is the best in ambient. Very comparable to brian eno.

One track.

Asbendos. One of the best ambient tracks ever.

Biografía

Nacido(a): 1960 en Frankfurt, Germany

Género: Electrónica

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s, '10s

If most artists in contemporary electronica are like islands unto themselves, turning out tracks in relative anonymity, Pete "Namlook" Kuhlmann was a whole continent. A dizzyingly prolific composer who steadily built up an entire industry around his Frankfurt-based Fax label, Namlook's name was inextricably linked with the post-rave resurgence of ambient music, and many of his solo and collaborative recordings with the likes of Mixmaster Morris, Tetsu Inoue, Klaus Schulze, Bill Laswell, Richie Hawtin,...
