"Silence is Being Substituted is mostly sculpted from live performances, recreated and rearranged as needed. I utilized strings and synthesizers. and employed digital processing and granular synthesis with concert and field recordings in ways I hadn't before. Perhaps this album finds me making a more sincere and ambitious to composition and form.
I tried to be especially cognizant of pacing and texture and worked to find the emotional core of these pieces, while still maintaining the foundational opacity that I always strive to maintain."
This album is definitely the next level of Derek's progress as an artist.

To me, this album sounds like a dying planet that was once full of life, but is now mostly desert with a few pockets of water. This music creates such specific pictures like that, and that's why I enjoy it so much. ggrimes65
