Koan – When The Silence Is Speaking

Koan – When The Silence Is Speaking

9 songs, 1.3 hours long

Koan’s 2009 album When The Silence Is Speaking is a chill adventure. The album is fairly ambient, and this is an album I don’t mind throwing on to drown out noise from neighbors when I’d like to sleep. The album is full of empty sounds, lots of echoes over a slow but steady rhythm. Fans of Bluetech should definitely check this one out. Like Bluetech and other ambient works, it’s easier to talk about the atmosphere of When The Silence Is Speaking than other aspects of the album, and like Bluetech’s work, When The Silence Is Speaking has an aquatic feel. However, Koan’s work is less layered and more ambient than Bluetech. This isn’t a bad thing, it just leaves the album with a more lonesome feeling. Altogether, it’s a cool listen, and one I definitely recommend. Apologies to those who don’t know Bluetech for leaning so heavily on the comparison between the artists.
