Silent Records, America’s premier ambient record label, is bringing their mystical brand of ambient and drone music back to Dunsmuir this October.

Dronesmuir (a portmanteau of the words Dunsmuir and Drone) is the second of a series of music concerts planned by Silent Records for 2019.

Drone music will be performed by three artists on the Silent label:

Jack Hertz (San Francisco)—small hand-percussion and acoustic instruments processed via synthesizer

Stuart McLeod (Portland)—hydrophone, brainwaves, waterphone & digital processing

Mark Schlipper (Seattle)—guitar and effects.

Jack Hertz promises to enthrall the audience with realtime processing via synthesizers of small handmade instruments. Stuart McLeod’s performance will make use of a hydrophone (underwater microphone) dropped into the underground rivulet below the restaurant. The hydrophone signal, combined with the waterphone will be processed digitally and controlled by the artist’s brainwaves.

Mark Schlipper plays guitar in the Seattle drone-doom band The Luna Moth and will perform a solo guitar drone set.

In addition, Jack Hertz will be speaking with music students at College of the Siskiyous at noon

on Friday, October 18.

The Wheelhouse will have food and beverages available for purchase, and Silent Records will have a merchandise table stocked with releases by these artists and many rarities from the Silent Records vault.
