Sound in Silence present, in their usual wonderful packaging, a new duo of ambient gazers that evoke scenic vistas with their debut (I think?) Witches’ Jelly. Let me introduce Thee Koukouvaya, a Brooklyn project of slight sounds that here exist as one whole piece, split into a couple of movements that comes to just under 30 minutes. It begins with calm wonder and tonal jubilation, a saturated evolving texture that gives the impression of no specific instrument, but a yawning chasm of hazy harmony.
Some weird altered voice interrupts, before the instrumentals return as full as before but with more drastic shifts in note - a symphony in cloud form. They riff over this with odd digital rippling sounds to provide some counterpoint to the silky smoothness, making this a pretty admirable bit of music, very evocative and pacifying. Very good for a first one, encore
