In January this year, Prague sleepover all-night event titled Silent Night hosted three special acts – Dudal (leader of Dauw label), Stijn Huwels (leader of Slaapwel label) and rising star of ambient music Cass. Collaborative and solo performances of these musicians were that special so that the record label Genot Centre, involved in organising Silent Night, decided to release a selection of recordings on cassettes, made during this intimate evening.
Cass. opens the album with a gently paced, dreamlike reflection suggesting a rich psychological depth underneath its harmonic sounds. Dudal continuous with two organic tracks, intersecting his guitar and kalimba with field recordings and electronics, creating a restrained, loose sound perfectly in line with the organic philosophy as preached by such artists as Marcus Fischer and Steven Roden. On the second side, Cass. returns and joins forces with Stijn Hüwels for a heavy-hearted mammoth collaboration. Cass. concludes the selection with a hair-raising track tied together by eerie synthetic string sounds.
