"I’ve always loved ambient music since I first discovered it (in the 1980s) through the pioneering work of Brian Eno, a musician who I greatly admire. Recently I’ve been introduced to the work of Cousin Silas, partly through my good friend Thomas Mathie (aka @headphonaught). Cousin Silas is not so well known as Brian Eno, but he produces some wonderfully evocative soundscapes. His album Adrift off the Islets of Langerhans is a great introduction to his work and can be downloaded free here! Apart from the music itself, I love the way the cover picture of the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas of the human body suggests patterns in the sand.
You know... I learned something tonight. I honestly thought the cover of Adrift off the Islets of Langerhans
was patterns in sand. Thanks for the post, John.
You learn something new every day Thomas! John.ReplyDelete
If your pancreas looks like that, get it checked out, because the photograph is of sand on a beach... On the other hand, maybe they should have checked out the beach for looking like a pancreas, but I don't think so... The CD edition comes with a little more artwork, all of it of a littoral rather than a pancreatic nature.ReplyDelete
