"The Common Silence" by Lee Chapman cements the reputation of Eilean Rec. as a purveyor of the most excellent ambient soundscapes.
Chapman has excelled himself with this vibrant, engaging and well rounded release. His ability to combine tranquil field recordings with equally sublime electronics is a delight that brings the height of summer to the listener ... regardless of the season they themselves are listening in. He also does mysterious very well, feeding the mind of the listener as well as their ears.
Chapman is a skilled sound-sculptor and, with ease, demonstrates that there is nothing common about this release.
