ON SILVERSHINE: INTO THE BLEAK RAIN
CDR: Demo 
The Bleak Rain (slow soundscape edition)
on Silvershine is a side project from the 32 year old Estonian artist
Aurelius Solitude who has releases under the From Deepness Of Solitude
moniker. "Into the bleak rain" is a six-tracked single featuring
different versions of the titled ‘song’. I’ve taken
a bit of a shine to this guy. Although his website is…to be blunt…pish
and needs serious working on…anyone who lists as one of his other
activities ‘helping nice persons’ just can’t be bad.
A decent guy in a very crappy world is rare indeed.
music on these six tracks are of the dark / experimental ambient kind.
As stated prior it’s basically the same track but reworked differently
each time. Each one sounding suitably nothing like its predecessor. The
dynamic electronics flow in ever ingenious ways with copious amounts of
mournful atmospherics…well it is titled "Into the bleak rain"
so you wouldn’t expect anything less. Technically he’s very
skilled and accomplished with his own individual style that’s suitably
goes against the grain at times. There are fleeting moments of abstractness
to the music which works well in his favour. Never afraid to a dd substance
he employs all manner of tried and tested variables into the tracks. Therefore
the use of sampled choral chants, echo effects, metallic / bell bashing
and glorious synth lines aren’t out of place. These are but a few
of the tricks he employs over the tracks to keep the interest ever growing.
The only fly in the ointment being a slight dip in the clarity of the
production but I’ll forgive him that…or it could just be that
I need a brand new stereo.
