Dronescape 004 (waag_drs004)

by Cousin Silas



"So long as the gift is not withheld, the creative spirit will remain a stranger to the economies of scarcity. Salmon, forest birds, poetry, symphonies, or Kula shells, the gift is not used up in use. To have painted a painting does not empty the vessel out of which the paintings come. On the contrary, it is the talent which is not in use that is lost or atrophies, and to bestow one of our creations is the surest way to invoke the next."

Lewis Hyde - "The Gift - How the Creative Spirit transforms the World"

This quote sums up, at least for me, the creative spirit of Cousin Silas. He does not withhold his gift. He gives it away and, in doing so, it is not used up.

We are now on our fourth 'Dronescape' and there are no signs that he is slowing down. In fact, I believe his creative spark is at an all time 'sparkiness' … his recent work for weareallghosts, for Jack Hertz' label or for Complex Silence demonstrates this.

His dronescapes have become very personal to me … they have been and are a source of strength to me in difficult times, giving me a sense of calm and focus whilst everything else seems to be going crazy. I am forever in his debt for this.

I hope you enjoy this piece as much I as have and do. The music of Cousin Silas is a gift worthy of continual movement. I, for one, look forward to his next piece with anticipation.
