Composer and multi–instrumentalist Jorge Martinez records under several aliases. Of Silence and Sound is his outlet for heartfelt, organic, emotional music, at times evoking Slowdive or The Cure’s quieter moments. Wistfulness and optimism simultaneously resonate in his intimate songs. Layers of intertwining guitar lines envelop the listener in a very personal sonic environment. Martinez’s lyrics are spare, his hushed voice acting in effect as another instrument, freeing the music to speak with its own language.
Of Silence and Sound is music of honesty and depth, wherein the listener can take solace — and not feel so alone in this fast–paced, troubled world.
