Artist Of The Day: CFCF

Michael Silver invites as much as he terrifies. Better known as ambient electronic artist CFCF, he composes sparkling minimalist gems that, in their own mysterious way, tap into something visceral, even as their murky production and sound betray little. Take his recent experiment, the Music For Objects EP, where he wrote short pieces for everyday objects like keys, cameras and glass: Silver opted to hint at these items' hidden essences through subtle instrumentation and songwriting instead, making for an engaging, rewarding listen. His patience and faith in the listener's intelligence pays dividends on his most recent release, Outside, which feels at turns adventurous and reserved, playful and haunting. If you look too close at these soundscapes, they'll shiver your soul, but you won't be able to peel your eyes away either.
