1 - 99.9 - SILEX - (CD) 

Welcome into the very core of a mechanism thats been persisting since the dawn of time.Simultaneously to his current Proth├Ęse and NothingButNoise projects, prolific musicianDaniel B. introduces "Silex" (French for flint), a colossal double album which analyses theduality between accretion and erosion mechanisms. Under the 99.9 moniker which indicatesthe obvious follow-up to his collaboration with violinist Edwin Vanvinckenroye with whom herecorded the "99.9" album which was released at the beginning of 2018, the multiinstrumentalistunveils a completely unexpected content this time around, quite the opposite tothe compositions on that first album which were in the very Proth├Ęses electro-kraut style. Ifthe core band members are the same, bringing double bass musician Joris Vanvinckenroye -Edwins brother - into the fold for the recording of "Silex" lead to a radical change of the auraldirection of the project. The album gathers a wealth of strings and synths layers mixed witheach other in order to produce a serious and ritual record, where contemplative tracksalternate with overactive moments, between ambient, neo-classical and soundtrack, sticking tonew composition codes. This conceptual record offers four versions of the same theme ontofour intense, huge and timeless pieces of music, two pairs delivered through two records, andwhich are to be listened to with the feeling of watching millions of years passing by before youreyes at high speed. Following the running order, Origin & Dissolution , Naked Sand , Corrosion and Erosion as four long tracks all capture the slow and eternal test of time onrocky material which formed through an equally slow aggregation process. Whether it ischemical ( Corrosion ) or mechanical ( Erosion ), its inevitable dissolution will end up aswhite sand, which will eventually aggregate again as flint through chemical precipitation underfavorable conditions. Subtle exercise designed to translate the perpetual renewal by introducinga blurred line between origins and the end of a process, Silex established itself as a recordof ancestral melancholy, both one-of-a-kind and essential in the outstanding discography of afirst class aural composer .
