descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Silence is Being Substituted is mostly sculpted from live performances, recreated and rearranged as needed. I utilized strings and synthesizers, and employed digital processing and granular synthesis with concert and field recordings in ways I hadn't before. Perhaps this album finds me making a more sincere and ambitious to composition and form. I tried to be especially cognizant of pacing and texture and worked to find the emotional core of these pieces, while still maintaining the foundational opacity that I always strive to maintain."-Derek Rogers
