Listening to I Walked Into the Silver Darkness  we get some very slick guitar improvisations (as much as I can tell) that, on the most part, I would qualify as dark ambient music. Mark Wingfield and Kevin Kastning certainly are gifted and talented guitar players to be able to produce such a high level of instrumental music. Also, the production of this CD is just great. Listening with my headphones, I was blown away by the sound quality on this record.

 

However, most of the pieces on I Walked Into The Silver Darkness are not easily digested by the listener. I would make references with the more experimental and ambient works of Robert Fripp and David Torn to give a general idea of what to expect here.

 

Those into experimental improvised music should certainly give Mark Wingfield and Kevin Kastning a try, because their new CD can easely be compared to those of the more famous musicians I mentioned in this review.
