Sense The Pain Of Empty Soul... ( Standalone piece - This could be the
last HWSIS, I'm too busy working on other projects - Only Time Will
Tell. Headphones recommended!
For a few stretching miles to all directions of the wind there was basically nothing - but the Frisian lowlands. Totally at random someone seemed to have thrown in a couple of farms; the first b-road along our farm was only laid out somewhere in 1965. Before and after there was the overwhelming silence of the lands. I remember especially the early days of March - when everywhere around us the lowlands ( finally ) defrosted, sometimes in early spring days without any trace of wind whatsoever. Special also where those extraordinay silent days in late September, early October - as we were all watching the skies for the first storms to arrive.
Today ( 50 years later ) you will find elements as mentioned above in all my art : the ( overwhelming ) waves of silence, the slowly passing of time ( coming to a complete standstill - I like that! ), and the sounds/noise of Nature.
Most of all you will find these elements in my side project He Who Speaks In Silence.
Influences : David Sylvian, Brian Eno, Gas, Harold Budd, Eluvium, Library Tapes, Brian Wilson, The Sight Below, Yagya, Thomas Köner, and a lot of more or less totally obscure underground.
As I don't believe in reincarnation I work on a lot of projects simultaneously - here they are..
