David Kellett This is a magnificent release. I absolutely love the last track. I’d love a much longer version of that one as I just can’t get enough of it.
It seems like melancholic sunshine and the sound of the wind in the trees to me. Beautiful Favorite track: Between the Endless Silence.

Michael Mazour This is just great. I would compare it to Harold Budd, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. (Mick, I know you're your own man and not trying to copy anyone.) Favorite track: That October.

jaydenyer Mick's work is always top-notch, 'Between The Endless Silence' may be my favourite of his releases yet. I've listened to this three times in a row today and really enjoying it, lovely blissful ambience that sounds in a similar ballpark to Eno's 'Music For Airports'. Perfect stuff, I can't recommend this enough, well worth buying.

about

The inimitable Mr. Chillage seems to go from strength-to-strength with each and every new release, armed with a diligent, focused work ethic and a surfeit of imagination, which makes his latest Carpe Sonum Novum missive a pleasant, diverse surprise. Perhaps he’s immersed himself in Harold Budd and Tim Story records, as he’s chosen for this release to center his already gorgeously pealing whorls of ambient discourse around the keystrokes of the piano. But wait: lest you roll your eyes and bemoan the entry of yet another electronic musician who fancies himself a ‘classical’ composer, Mick’s tickling of the ivories isn’t mere folly or a gestural jape. Instead, the artist has, intentionally or inadvertently, created a paean to the elegaic minimalistic sides forged by Mssrs. Budd & Eno, couched in the softly irising synthetic thermals he’s arranged over countless works in his formidable catalog. “Between the Endless Silence” isn’t therefore your typical piano-centered blandishment, nor a stuffy bit of experimentation, or even its creator’s desire to abandon his chosen field. Instead, Chillage has done the next to impossible, recontextualizing the delicate filigree of the acoustic grand throughout a wonderfully luxurious fabric of electronica, refracting a veritable font of melodies that linger in the head long after the disc concludes. Had this been issued in the early 80s, it would be considered a well-established classic; we’ll just assume that right now, and brandish it accordingly. Play it late at night or early in the morning; either way, it’s more brilliant than the sun.
