The Emporium Project 1.3 (waag_rel126) is the third of five albums from Cousin Silas and his Friends, and features another eclectic selection of sounds, opening as it does with a 25 minute longform track entitled "Pas de la Dame Sauvage (Strone Part Three)" from Cousin Silas & Jeff Appleton that is wonderfully atmospheric and sets the scene for the remainder of the album. From there we move to something more melodic, "Mirror Family" by Cousin Silas & Darren Douglas Danahy, that I find captivating and strangely reminiscent of John Carpenter's soundtracks.
As before, I could list all the tracks, for they all mean something to me, but I would be here all day. We go from longform and experimental sounds in all their various guises to Berlin School with OneAmbient4; we have noisy and engaging and resolutely unique sounds ... suffice to say this is another belter of a compilation.
We continue to use this series as an opportunity to give a little back to our wider community. All monies raised from the sale of this album will be donated to Hospice UK. I am both fortunate and grateful to work for an employer who actively matches all donations made ... so every purchase will be doubled for the benefit of a very worthy cause.
I really do hope you will enjoy this album as much as I have.
**Please Note:** due to the fundraising aspect of this album, it will not be added to our collection over at archive.org
