seananomie I have been buying these From Here To Tranquility comps since I was in college in the early 90s. This is some of my all-time favorite music.

Branden Marshall Ahh, never thought Id see a new Silent Records comp and now it feels like they never left. Superb ambience you'd expect from Silent. Favorite track: "Pyramid".

Deftly-D Silent Records is probably America's longest running ambient label, which back in the 90s was delivering a ton of favorite albums from artists ranging from Merzbow to Ambient Temple of Imagination to Vuemorph to The Spice Barrons. I loved what Kim Cascone put out and am pleased to see the rebirth of Silent. This compilation could easily have been released at that time and yet is as timeless and relevant as today. Such a great collection of work. Favorite track: "The Prayer".

David Atkinson Delighted to see Silent back again, I came across the label in the early 90's and I still go back to listen to them, the sound is timeless. I can highly recommend tracking down the other 'Tranquility' albums and each of the ones by Heavenly Music corp, also Unidentified floating ambience is a classic. Looking forward already to the next compilation..thanks! Favorite track: "Seventh Sun Circuit".

  • From Here To Tranquility - Volume 6 (The Renaissance)
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Silent Records celebrates its 30th anniversary with a brand new release: a limited edition, two disc compilation containing
    16 new tracks by the ambient artists whose music helped define the label in the 90's.
    This compilation of light and dark ambient music will undoubtedly pull new listeners into the ambient fold while quenching
    the thirst of die-hard fans who have waited patiently since 1998 for new material from the label.
    Most of the tracks on "From Here to Tranquility" were created specially for this limited edition release, some were rescued
    from dusty tape vaults so this double CD will undoubtedly become an instant collectors item.
    Each of the two discs is focused on an atmosphere: one is comprised of light ambient chill room music great for driving,
    commuting or walking your dog in the park; the other contains dark atmospheres better suited for late night walks along a
    stormy coastline or late night highway driving.
    Either disc will provide tranquil, mesmerizing, mysterious sonic journeys from the label known for releasing music for your
    inner ear.
    Be Silent. Be Still. Look Within.

    Includes unlimited streaming of From Here to Tranquility - Volume 6 (The Renaissance) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

"We shade our ambient in sound colors light and dark. Signals in and out of the calm and stillness of what is left unsaid. Treasured roadmaps. Coded experiments. We retouch the mindset of the past and turn to the future. We 360, deeply in space. We craft, and we flow onward. Here are new stories for each rhythm of sun and moon to earth and back. This is where the weave of light is one world, the weave of dark another. Together, they form a voice of contrast. Illumination. Connectivity. Immersion. Clarity. This is the music that forever drifts in our soul.
This is our silent renaissance."
-- Don Falcone
This album is dedicated to our fallen Silent artists: Michael Mantra, Jorge Reyes, Paul Bambury, Susumu Yokota and Zbigniew Karkoski. May they all become Buddhas.
