Opticks Opticks CD (2010) Definitive Album
CD $15.15 Buy It  Details
Silje Nes discography Silje Nes recorded Opticks in the same home studio in which she made the collection of demos that became her debut album Ames Room, but the Norwegian's second album opens a new world of possibilities. Opticks manages to be more cohesive and polished, drawing on Nes' growing experience as a composer and producer without sacrificing the delicacy that made Ames Room so charming. And though these tracks are delicate, they're far from passive -- if anything, Nes is more versatile and flexible on songs like the album-opener "The Grass Harp," where the drums and artfully layered sounds pump the melody through the song like blood through an artery. Opticks' most fully fleshed-out tracks are its most exciting, showing that Nes can sustain a mood as deftly as she creates them. "Silver > Blue" spins an eerie tale of love and control over hypnotic hints of flute and glockenspiel; "The Card House" casts a mischievous haze; and "Levitation" builds into a gently percolating groove before floating out on a cloud of guitar shimmer. Of course, there are just as many Ames Room-style tracks with one or two-word titles that reflect just how vignette-like they are ("Crystals," "Branches," "Hello Luminance"), but even Opticks' most fragile confections reflect Nes' growth. She emphasizes sound and atmosphere over her voice, covering herself with even more cloudy and intricate sounds on pieces such as "Rewind," which unfolds and shifts in a bewitching way closer to sound art than a pop song.

Silje Nes Biography

Silje Nes CD discography Norway's Artist has a wealth of musical experience in her background, including classical piano training and time spent as an orchestral timpanist, marching band drummer, and indie pop musician, but the pieces on Ames Room, her debut album, shied away from her formalist musical past for a more exploratory, unsophisticated, evocative approach, using instruments (guitar, cello, loop pedals) and techniques (four-track and laptop recording) with which she'd had limited previous experience. Her 2010 album Opticks was more polished, but was also crafted in her home studio. ~ K. Ross Hoffman
