Nico Niquo returns to Orange Milk with the synthetic ambient masterpiece In A Silent Way. The work contains slowly evolving compositions and sound meditations based around the palette of modern grime music minus the percussion. In the songs “Arbor Arco” and “He Loved Him Madly” the grime theme is most present, with droplets of synth and bass rising and melting to suggest invisible kick drums underneath. “Rendered” and “In A Silent Way” begin with simple arpeggios that build to intense climaxes, while closing track “Aa-m” is an almost ASMR-inducing meditation.
Music by Nico Callaghan. Tenor Saxophone by Joseph Buchan. Mastered by Simon Lam. Visual art by Keith Rankin.
