An amazing new composition by the Danish sound explorer Jacob Kirkegaard, a soundtrack for the film of Uzbek director Saodat Ismailova, a journey into silence and its possible inner variations, an intimate and deep sonic journey, that takes us further into ourselves. Listen carefully and inmerse yourself into the dense and haunting drones of 40 days of Silence. 

"Von present six selections from Kirkegaard's soundtrack, framing a desolate, distant soundfield rent with glistening, spectral harmonics and wide, open layers of subsuming bass naturally redolent of classic works by Thomas Köner, Helge Sten and Kevin Drumm, or elements of Eduard Artemiev's work for Andrei Tarkovsky. It's genuinely transportive music, conjuring imagery of dusty, windswept steppes that stretch as far as the eye can see, but also takes us somewhere far more intimate, internal and eternal. Ambient records of this subtle nature don't come around often these days. It's a real beauty." Boomkat
