In a statement about ‘New York’ and its music video, the singer-songwriter explains:
“‘New York’ is a lament for a relentlessly impermanent place. It’s a song of estrangement from streets that became unrecognizable in no time, and the end of a dissociation from sounds I’d come to ignore.
I’ve strung together this video from collections of footage archived in the public domain, from open-sourced memories of an obsolete city that maybe never was.
Through reorganizing these aimless images, I found a story of flight from crowded cacophony, a quiet struggle against New York’s stubborn gravitational pull, and a memory just beyond reach.”
‘Impermance’ is set for release on February 24th. Much of what influenced the album was a hearing impairment which “forced [him] consider the finite […] In order to find rest and quiet, I left my Brooklyn apartment for a secluded setting in upstate New York,” he explains.
Last year, Silberman released ‘Transcendless Summer’ EP, which was much more ambient than any of his previous work. However, referring to his upcoming album he states that “it goes beyond experiments in ambience. It traces the stages of healing, as I experienced them.”
