Sylent Running is the unique collaboration between New York-based Jazz pianist/composer Barney McAll and singer/composer, Gian Slater that features a mix of New York and Melbourne musicians with a strong conceptual underpinning.
Sylent Running plays with silence and non-silence, beauty and all its opposites, through-composed melodies and improvisation, song crafting and abstraction, pristine acoustics and botched, ‘confused robot’ electronics.
They relased their first album ‘Empathy Chip’ in 2009 which features:
Barney McAll (NY)- Piano, Chucky and Electronics, Gian Slater – Voice
Chris Hale – Electric Bass, Jojo Meyer –Drums, Dan West -Laptop, Toys, Electronics
Nir Felder (NY)- Guitar
