Drifting In Silence

Drifting In Silence

Real Name:
Derrick Stembridge
Drifting in Silence is the name of a longstanding ambient and industrial musical project undertaken by multi-instrumentalist and composer Derrick Stembridge. Stembridge chose the name as "a description of the feeling evoked by the music," intended to create the sensation of movement through regions of light and shadow. Stembridge has described the music of Drifting in Silence as "post-ambient."

The sound of Drifting in Silence is characterized by layered ambiences driven by groove rhythms, and punctuated by instrumental riffs and snatches of concrete sounds. Individual tracks range from meditative tone poems to high-energy groove.

As musical influences behind Drifting in Silence, Stembridge cites Robin Guthrie, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, and the music of Skinny Puppy, among others.
