ravenlescar I very been an artist my whole life
listening to music while I work
I've listened to almost everything and ended up being addicted to ambient
cousin silas supplies this aural drug so effectively as to make me excited I'm a relaxed way while I paint

spieltrieb I have been following Cousin Silas' work since the early releases on Earth Monkey and Earthrid a decade ago, and am deeply moved by the trajectory of this great-souled guitarist--truly a musician's musician. Dronescape 30 is ample evidence of his mastery: an easy artistic authority, depth of feeling, breadth of vision.

Brian Bourassa Back in April of 2014, when I wrote the liner notes to Cousin Silas''s Dronescape017 he had mentioned that he had 30 Dronescapes,tentatively done. He was not sure if all would be released or not at the time. Well, here we are at #30 and I am not at liberty to discuss how many more he has for us fans.......that's because I have no clue!!

Dronescape 030 is outstanding, like endless memories crashing on our psychic shores, we are told of stories of our souls, adrift and afloat on the seas of life.

wayne j eldridge Cousin Silas would have to be one of the greatest artists of the "Drone" genre. I listen to Dronescape 030 at night, during the day, when studying, for meditation.... this stuff really does immerse one into another realm.

TEK Deen This is a masterpiece in drone scape music it captures the endless void and state of travelling, the eternal voyage, melancholic, full or rich textures and orchestral synth sounds.....introspective, sad....

about

I am not alone in my appreciation of Cousin Silas’ music, he makes music that people want in their lives. This fact doesn’t surprise me when I consider some of his lighter moments with their beats, literary samples and general sense of fun; but I do get surprised at the fact so many people have taken to his dronescapes. These post-60 minute epics are an acquired taste and yet they are, by far, the most popular series that weareallghosts has put out. Not only do they keep the lights on, so to speak, and allow us to keep offering most of the music for free / pay what you want … they also keep the passion hot. I genuinely look forward to each and everyone, and after thirty pieces plus an album of edited drones, I have yet to see feel the anticipation wane. The thirtieth sonic adventure is no exception: it is expansive, engaging, and deeply entertaining to a longform fan like me.

As with our compilation and at the behest of Cousin Silas himself, there will be a small charge for the thirtieth dronescape during the month of January. All proceeds will be donated to HOSPICE UK, a charity based in the UK that supports the development of hospice care in the UK and internationally.

weareallghosts is my main side-project and something I do for the love of it. My main employment is as a Business Analyst in Glasgow, Scotland; my employer actively and generously supports HOSPICE UK and doubles any donation made by her staff - by paying for this dronescape we will hopefully be able to raise some more money for a really great cause and give a little good back into the world.

The album will not be available on Archive or on Soundcloud.

My sincere thanks to Cousin Silas for making music people want in their lives and for suggesting we raise a wee bit more for Hospice UK with his thirtieth dronescape.

Thanks to the generosity of the waag community, we managed to raise approximately £300 for HOSPICE UK which will be doubled by my employer. My sincere thanks to everyone who contributed and especially to Cousin Silas for his gift.
