The distance between Mexico and Greece is undeniably a great one – but only in terms of kilometers or miles. In terms of sound, as far as we are concerned, these two countries are incredibly close. How close exactly? This is something you can find out for yourself if you listen to our collaboration, or, more correctly, to the collaboration of the sounds we recorded and combined to achieve this result. So faraway and yet so close: the unit that is formed by the sounds of cars, birds, whispers, by all the sounds of the city – and more – feels as if we were living just around the corner from each other. -Chris Silver T- May 2016

Chris Silver T (NOS Project). After more than 20 years of service as the drummer of Greek neo-psychedelic pioneers Purple Overdose and No Man’s Land (still on active duty with the latter), Chris Silver T decided to temporarily abandon his drum kit in order to embark on a private journey in the sea of sounds that laps the shores of his mind. The results of this esoteric trip can be heard in the soundscapes of NOS Project: ambient memories of places one visits in dreams.
