Tip! "Sil Muir presents to us here their first full-length work. It is a beautiful, yet melancholy, hour-long recording carrying us along that sleepless journey from dusk 'til dawn. Powerful and gentle drones shudder and shimmer through these four dense and amazing tracks. Sil Muir is the collaboration between Andrea Marutti (Amon, Never Known, Afe Records) and Andrea "Ics" Ferraris (Ur, Airchamber3, Ulna). Their only previous appearances are a lengthy compilation track on Transf.Order and a collaboration with Horchata on Taâlem. Housed in a custom printed color wallet, edition of 500 copies." - Diophantine Discs press-release

"Sil Muir is a contemporary minimalism droning project involving Andrea Ferraris and Andrea Marutti. The subterranean, circular abstracted dronescapes are covered by fragile-ephemeral and melancholic echoing guitar sounds. The first piece is an ecstatic journey of sounds based on Marutti's slow moving drone rituals and covered by introspective, delicate guitar echoing notes from Andrea Ferraris. "The Spring That Never Comes" is an outer space, meditative piece growing into real isolation and bleak atmospheres. "Light at 4:48" is another spacious, intimate and sacred drone-like electronic theme. It starts with a glacial, arctic soundscape in the distance that becomes magnified by a cascade of serene, warm guitar chords. Completely beautiful and plastically vibrant. An holy nocturnal ceremony. It sometimes reminds me Peter Wright's droning "abyssal" guitars but less massive and less heavy with much more emphasis on intimate and mytho-poetical themes. "We Don't Need Time, We're Already in Eternity" is a twenty minute subliminal droning electronic sphere that slowly and delicately emerges from a blackened abstract world. I'm impatient to discover more sound materials from this fantastic new duo. A pinnacle of dronemusik." - Philippe Blache
