Gideon This is a very good collection of tracks by Silas and his friends.

Pixie First of all, Cousin Silas became somehow my personal medicine man. His music brings me the calmness that I loose sometimes.
Besides this I really love his thought to combine his creativity with the ideas of other musicians. The result are 26 outstanding tracks, each of them so individual as the artists who created them.
And last but not least I feel really, really honored to be part of this release with the track "Wings", which is inspired by one of my poems. Favorite track: Wings.

Brian Bourassa An eclectic array of artists makes this 26 track album a great afternoon of listening enjoyment.

I am particularly amazed at the list of "friends" that Cousin Silas has. A great accompaniment for a common musical journey.

Silas & Friends vol.3 (waag_rel050)

The third volume of collaborations between Cousin Silas and his Friends - Silas & Friends vol.3 (waag_rel050) - is our 50th album release and 82nd release overall on weareallghosts.

It features 26 collaborations with 23 creative musicians and demonstrates the broad nature of ambient music.

Each combination is different ... each interaction releases some special magic, a synergy of effort, that brings out the best in both musicians and produces some truly exceptional music. As a non-musician, I find this utterly fascinating.

It would be unfair to single any one track out as being a highlight. I'll leave that to you, the listener, to do. What I will say is that I welcome this album to weareallghosts and hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.

I would also like to pay tribute to Brian Bourassa and Adam Howie. Adam drew this wonderful illustration over Brian's original photograph. I really like how it has turned out ... especially since I asked Adam to 'do something sci-fi, something Roger Dean' over Brian's original picture. Two wallpapers are attached with Bandcamp release for the adornment of your PC or Mac, if you so desire.
