The Speed of Silence

The Speed of Silence by Clifford White

The Speed of Silence

Genre : The Speed of Silence - part two of Clifford White's SYNERGY series - bounces into action with a varied mixture of beats and grooves ossillating between 70's funk, 80's disco and 90's dance suffused with a liberal sprinkling of lounge, chillout and new age sentiments that make The Speed of Silence an exciting and inspiring romp through the very best that classic electronica has to offer.

The Speed of Silence forms part two of the SYNERGY series, an exploration of electronic music past, present and future. Currently at four volumes, the SYNERGY series offers some of the finest electronic music available today, revealing a fresh new perspective on the nostalgic sounds and rhythms of the past fused with a vibrant and inspiring vision of the future.

This video contains clips of all of the tracks from The Speed of Silence album.

“This is so refreshing and all of the tracks are sublime, In Tidal Forces, I first though Brain Salad Surgery was going to fly out of the speakers, but no, this is different, there’s hints of the 80’s, I actually thought Mark Shreeve was playing on this track. Vitamin Sea, has a nice and easy, slow jazzy feel, dreamy piano and accompanying rim shots, with the sax sounds of Kenny G and David Sanborn grooving along. Speed of Silence has the urge to take you to a time, back in the day and get you onto your feet as a compulsory dance floor tune. Froesen Dreams, is a dedication to the late and greatly missed Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese, without whom, electronic music might not have had a direction to go in. Fertile has a mixture of Sade’s Smooth Operator and Smokey Robinson’s Being with you blended in to it. Event Horizon would be the prefect soundtrack to fit a Star Wars film, the soaring string sounds, the effects of an approaching threat from a distance is so powerful . Submersible is very catchy, go back to 1979/80 and think Underwater by Harry Thumann and you have it. Space Invader is a compulsory “foot tapper” and very funky and fizzy, with some spooky sounds thrown in, you are being warned, this is an ear worm. Electric Frontier should have been chosen as the Krypton Factor theme, it would have suited the programme and made it more interesting. Love on the moon is just so dreamy, a slow and catchy, which moves along and draws you in, it’s almost like there are elements of Tim Wheater’s flute floating along. Put it this way, I’ve ordered my copy.” – Alan J Willey
