New releases and re-stocks from the always excellent Infraction label, just added to the
Hypnos Store inventory.

Concert Silence
(Infraction category)
(Price: $13.99)
Concert Silence is a collaboration between Charles Buckingham and Matthew Cooper, currently both residing in Portland, Oregon. An ongoing
conversation between the two began in 2004 when they met over a shared interest in live sound manipulation. 09.22.07 was the first major outcome of

Ben Fleury-Steiner – Keep a Weather Eye Open
(Infraction category)
(Price: $13.99)

We just received a bit box of restocks from the Dataobscura and Blue Oasis labels, as well as one new item, now available on the
Hypnos Store today.

Nunc Stans – We Leave Without Speaking
(Blue Oasis/Dataobscura category)
(Price: $13.99)
We Leave Without Speaking is a single, 72 minute piece of expansive and deeply involving atmospheric ambience that wanders an enigmatic world of its own making, seamlessly flowing through a variety of rich sonic palettes and absorbing soundworlds. A work of considerable beauty, with an underlying sense of forlorn isolation and longing. A mature and sophisticated continuation of the Nunc Stans legacy.
Performed by Anthony Paul Kerby, spring 2010, using various synthesisers, guitar, treated piano, field recordings, and digital processing…
