Peter Silberman has delivered new track 'Karuna' - check it out now.
The Antlers singer will release solo album 'Impermanence' early next year, with new song 'Karuna' leading the way.
Sparse, atmospheric, and emotionally involving, the production - aided by Nicholas Principe - is almost painfully intimate.
Much of what distinguishes 'Impermanence' from its forebears can be attributed to an unexpected injury, which forced me to consider the finite. A few years ago, I developed a hearing impairment that resulted in a temporary total hearing loss in one ear and an excruciating sensitivity to everyday sounds, including my own voice. In order to find rest and quiet, I left my Brooklyn apartment for a secluded setting in upstate New York. It would be some time before I experienced silence again, thanks to a constant blizzard of tinnitus.
Once silence ceased to be available to me, I came to think of it as the luxury of well-calibrated perception. We mistakenly perceive it as nothing, but it’s precious, a profound entity. It became obvious to me why many prayers are silent, performed in immaculately quiet spaces.
Tune in now.
'Impermanence' will be released on February 24th. Catch Peter Silberman at The Forge, London on December 7th and 8th.
