Crinklechips Dark ambient sounds from Steven Wilson’s studio project. I’ve always loved Bass Communion and this has the added excitement of being the soundtrack to the old ‘Deadwing’ film that never was but now apparently is!

One for the fans if ever there was such a thing ;-) Favorite track: And No Birds Sing (Theme).

When we talk about music, everything Steven touches, amazingly turns into pure gold.
Track II reminds me a bit the opening of the wonderful album The Sky Moves Sideways by Porcupine Tree.

2 pieces that originated as sound design / soundtrack material for the work in progress movie And No Birds Sing.

This first 28 minute sequence is assembled from material created for the film, dark industrial sound design, with cavernous metal scrapes, water drips, subterranean drones, and shortwave radio transmissions.

The second theme piece is more beautiful and harmonic, built around a sequence of chords in regular intervals that only arrives back at the beginning after moving through 24 different piano chords.

And No Birds Sing is a story that crosses genres, having aspects of Psychological Thriller, Horror and Mystery. Reality merges with film and the supernatural when a London director starts to experience strange events and is forced to confront his troubled past. The film blurs the lines of reality, memory and fiction where sound constantly motivates the twists and turns of the action.

So far a 4 minute test trailer for the film has been shot, watch it here!
