descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Slovenia bordering the border with Austria and Italy, located most west of Balkan. History, this place where western music and oriental music have intertwined. Ethnic music of the past and modern music also crossed in this place, and it became a new wind. "Silom" an ensemble trio using various string instruments, xylophones, percussion, creative musical instruments. This work recorded with acoustic performance that draws out the unique sounds of instruments such as The Necks and Richard Skelton is a one-out recording without overdubbing.

Combining well-composed parts and improvised parts well, three members playing while changing instruments, respectively. Deep sounding like Alvo Pelt, the development of dynamic songs and impressive Roman style violin, the sound of beautiful silk phones (the creative musical instruments) in the development part, colorful multinational poly rhythms, the vibration of stringed instruments shaking emotion."-Amorfon
