about

Sound In Silence is happy to announce the return of Jason Sweeney and his Panoptique Electrical project, presenting his new album Quiet Ecology.

This is his third release on the label after last year’s highly acclaimed album Disappearing Music For Face and the debut album, back in 2015, of his collaboration project with Richard Adams of Hood and The Declining Winter, under the name of Great Panoptique Winter.

For about twenty years Jason Sweeney, now based in Adelaide, Australia, has been composing and recording either solo, under the alias of Other People’s Children and Simpático, or with friends in various musical projects like Pretty Boy Crossover, Sweet William, School of Two, Luxury Gap, Par Avion, Great Panoptique Winter, Mist & Sea, Winter Witches and many others. He has also been directing and creating interactive works for the internet, experimental films, projects for galleries and theatre spaces and has collaborated with some of Australia’s leading performing arts companies and organizations.

In 2016 Sweeney undertook a quiet odyssey across four Australian cities (Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne), searching out and mapping quiet spaces in and amongst these built environments. He wanted to discover as many zones of quiet or retreat in these cities and make compositions in response to these locations. He created maps and listening walks that took him from space to space. His desire was to ask a simple question: Can you find a way to release yourself, if only temporarily, from the noise of the world?

Quiet Ecology is a sonic memorial to these spaces and a musical act of quiet preservation. It’s a relaxing collection of six quiet compositions, with a total duration of something more than 45 minutes, which sets out to slow things down. Centered on gentle piano melodies and a background full of atmospheric textures and swelling cello drones, Quiet Ecology balances between modern classical and ambient soundscapes, in the vein of both ambient pioneers like Brian Eno and Harold Budd and artists like Max Richter and A Winged Victory For The Sullen.

This is a limited edition of 200 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies. It is packaged in a lovely hand-stamped 127mm x 127mm 360 gsm dark green cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper and an insert sheet containing tracklist and information printed on a 160 gsm cream recycled cardboard. It also comes bundled with a download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.
