Indianapolis based sound artist and composer John The SIlent is back with a new album called Mungo Sessions which is out now via Somewherecold Records. According to the press release, Following on the heels of the melodic craft central to “Renewal” (2021) the new album finds John the Silent leaning into a more essential, improvisational exploration of sound and texture. This is not to say that Mungo Sessions lacks complexity or musicality – but the recording fundamentals are much more direct on this recording. Over the past years, the artist has collected obsolete ipads and tablets, in an attempt to reduce waste, but also work within limits to make art. Their occasional live set consists of an improvisational composition of sounds, field recordings, and ambient textures blended and manipulated by the artist for a unique experience each time.
