"Brian Harnetty is an Ohio-based musician, educator and artist, whose work involves typically overlooked elements of sound. Many of his pieces transform found materials -- including field recordings, transcriptions, and historic recordings into personal and often socio-cultural worlds. His music and installations have been performed and exhibited in the U.S. and Europe. Silent City is the follow-up to his incredible '07 work American Winter (ALP 180CD), which is rooted in recordings and transcriptions made available to Brian through a residency with the Appalachian Folk Archive (Berea, KY). The result often feels like a gently compelling collision of pure, real-deal 'Holler Music' and the deftness of Morton Feldman. Very much in a kindred-spirit, Silent City features Will Oldham (Palace Brothers, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Boxhead Ensemble) on vocals, and is a fascinating, compelling collaboration that mixes the last three centuries into one beautifully haunting, cryptic flow of idea-sound."
