Notes :

Last summer, Silicate gathered 7 musicians in a studio for the 6th edition of the label’s workshop. After having worked on Peter Hyams’ Outland on silicate 16, a new bunch of artists met to compose after an oddly freaky movie named The Keep, directed by Michael Mann in 1983.
The movie was blending a group of nazis with a love story and a magic cavern haunted by monsters, united for the first time in the same length film. This story had already inspired the legendary New Age band Tangerine Dream which signed the original soundtrack. 

Armed with a large synthesizer collection, we attempted to improvise directly along the scenes. We projected some parts of the movie while we were jamming some drone sounds out of the machines in order to propose a new arrangement.

Total, seven tracks have been recorded in an afternoon, we wanted to share it with you through this new silicate release .

Available online, as usual and on limited edition with handmade screen printed sleeve and insert by our team in association with our Genius Graphic designer Matthieu Cannavo.
