Just spent an evening listening to Norwegian sound duo Deaf Center’s 2005 album Pale Ravine. “Inspired by old silent 8mm film reels and the historical architecture”, Erik Skodvin and Otto Totland set out armed with microphones and recorded whatever they could, then mixed their findings with haunting pianos and strings. Pale Ravine is a beautiful sometimes disturbing album blending “elements of classical music with electronic music”. It felt cinematic soundtrack to my life, each song a nostalgic flash back that left me deep in a train of thought. Very personal indeed, as great music should be.
