Glice - Cielo
Amsterdam-based duo Glice packed up their gear, went to Berlin and recorded a brooding new album with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten. With Cielo, they expand their sound into the realms of post-classical, post-industrial music.
Ruben Braeken is one of the hardest working men in the Amsterdam music scene and Melle Kromhout is researching the history of sine waves at the University of Cambridge, after completing his dissertation in Amsterdam on the importance of noise in sound recording.
‘Everyone can make noise. But just ‘noise’ is no music. Creating music out of melody, rhythm and harmony is a craft, sometimes even art. Creating music – music that thrills, touches, shivers – out of just noise is almost magic. And that’s exactly what Glice does with ‘Cielo’.’ (peter bruyn)
‘I love noise, but Glice was really a revelation for me. These guys have a different perception of sound. They hear poetry where nobody does.’
