Hervé Castellani - Deux Silences (Metamkine, 1997)

Another entry in Jérôme Noetinger's Cinéma pour l’oreille series, this one comes via French composer and Hameçon co-founder Hervé Castellani. Two somewhat short missives here, the first built from the sounds of engines, a thunderstorm, and squeaky cart wheels, with several rises and falls before giving way to an almost too present organ swell. The second calls on a twisting of bird calls and tea kettles that eventually stretch into an upper range drone with hints of third ear action. Plenty of false stops in both, each also tied together by the use of water sounds.
