Sound In Silence is happy to announce the addition of (ghost) to its roster of artists, presenting his new album entitled The First Time You Opened Your Eyes.
This is his first album on Sound In Silence, although he has already appeared in another release of the label back in 2013, contributing a great remix for Absent Without Leave’s Faded Photographs Remixes.
(ghost) is the solo electronic project of Brian Froh, currently based in Denver, USA. Exploring and combining a mixture of music genres, ranging from idm and electronica to ambient and post-rock, he has released two albums and one EP on n5MD label and some self-produced releases, while he has also done many remixes for other similar artists.
The First Time You Opened Your Eyes showcases (ghost)’s atmospheric side to a fuller extent than in any of his previous releases by presenting an epic ambient journey with duration of something more than 34 minutes. The complex glitchy beats are left behind and only beautifully evocative soundscapes and calming atmospheres remain. The album captivates the listener with its lush instrumentation and warm palette of multiple layered emotional textures of resonant synths and droning feedback as indistinct dreamy vocals emerge somewhere in the distance. An impressive album, highly recommended for devotees of Deaf Center, Brian McBride and Eluvium.
This is a limited edition of 200 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies. It is packaged in a lovely hand-stamped 127mm x 127mm 260 gsm green-grey cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper and an insert with the tracklist and the credits printed on a 190 gsm saffron yellow cardboard. It also comes bundled with a download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.
