Gunter Adler – The Silver Book
(ca058) (October 14, 2007)
For some years I have been carrying a small silver book along with me. It serves as a note book for sketches, ideas, thoughts… These rarely are palpable or brought to conclusion. Thus they are not suited for any direct use. The silver book is an unlimited repository for inspiration, makes me feel contemplative
or amuses me. At times I wonder whether somebody who comes across the book should be able to discover a use for it or might find some meaning in the nonsensical words and sentences. This EP consists of material I collected and archived messily in the years 1999 to 2005. Call it IllMuzak, Illbient or an experimental audio book, the designation is without relevance. It is a personal and humoristic work, appropriate before a sumptuous dinner or in order to calm down passengers during the take off of an airplane.
My intention was to find blurred, yet nevertheless dense sound qualities offering sufficient room for private associations to the listener, however, simultaneously being powerful enough to carry him away. Although silver is the fairest of colours, the sounds of this EP are rather the opposite…
