Following on from Matthew Herbert’s ‘One’ trilogy - One One, One Club and One Pig - ‘The End Of Silence’ takes the idea of a single sound source to its logical conclusion by utilizing only one five second audio recording as the sole source for the whole album.
Matthew was emailed a recording made by photographer Sebastian Meyer during the battle of Ras Lanuf in Libya on 11th March 2011. In the brief recording, a pro-Gadaffi plane can be heard approaching, a whistled warning, a shout and then, as if from nowhere, a bomb. It is this recording that makes up the entirety of this record.
