"When The Clocks Have Stopped" (Wire Tapper edit))

From Knowing The Right Question To Ask

Counter Silence is the alias used by Southend based composer and producer Col Ventura. His debut album Knowing The Right Question To Ask is an assured collection of Ambient pieces, exquisitely dreamlike and achingly melancholy.
Painstakingly constructed from intricately layered minimalist piano, subtly developing drones and beautifully judged reverberation, Counter Silence’s music
is spectral, otherworldly and strangely alluring.
