The "Silence EP's" consisting of SILENCE TEACHES YOU HOW TO SING and SILENCING THE SINGING respectively - were two experiments and/or "studies in sound" made by Ulver (Kristoffer Rygg & Tore Ylvisaker) in 2001. They were later released as one CD under the name TEACHINGS IN SILENCE. The music from these sessions were made up by the boys just fooling around in their studio with an Akai S3000 sampler, synth(s), paper and scissors (literally), glitches, clicks and odd sounds - they even recorded their PC's hard drive overheating...
I have long loved these weird - and creepy - gems from Ulver's by now very large treasure chest of first class music. In fact excerpts from STYHTS were recently used to great effect in the hit horror movie SINISTER. No wonder really. It's perfect dark, dreamy and trippy stuff.
So when Steve and I started Ampullae, I asked Kris if he would be up for me re-mastering and re-releasing these high-fidelity, carefully cut and considered, heavy vinyls. Thankfully he agreed.
We are very pleased with the result and we hope this will be the first in an eclectic mix of personal choice favourites of never before released (audiophile) vinyl curiosa and curation from us...
