If you are a fan of ambient/drone/instrumental/shoegaze music listen up - this is some very nice stuff!
Hush Delirium is an art / music project created by Mark Gardener (Ride) and artist Simon Welford. The concept is simple - the musicians involved in the project each create a piece of instrumental music that is supplied to Simon Welford. He then uses that piece of music as inspiration to create artwork that he feels is representative of the piece supplied. Once all the art is created it is then exhibited in gallery style exhibitions with the music being played at the same time, giving visitors to the exhibitions the complete ‘Hush Delirium’ concept.
The line up of talent involved at present includes Mark Gardener (Ride), Aziz Ibrahim (Ian Brown, Stone Roses, Paul Weller, Simply Red), Dean Garcia (Curve / SPC ECO), Adam Franklin (Swervedriver), Perry Pelonero (A Star / Bliss City East / SPC ECO/ Project Morpheme), Jaq Gallier, Chatham Rise (Minneapolis hoegaze band), Her Vanished Grace (New York dream pop band) and The Cult of Dom Keller (Nottingham psychedelic rockers).
The project is offering up a 9 track free download at their Bandcamp page and it is well worth checking out! Connect with Hush Delirium on Facebook.
