About the show

Playing tracks by

John Foxx & Harold Budd, Celer, Genesis, Tim hecker, Alio Die and more.

I have always loved a little known Genesis tune called "Silent Sorrow in Empty Boats". The last song on the end of side three(vinyl), it's a 3 minute instrumental that is more ambient than old prog rock.

I remember a thread at the Hypnos forum, a long time ago, that was list of the best ambient tracks by non-ambient artists. I can't find the list or the thread, but I think I added artists like Radiohead, Daryl Hall, Peter Gabriel, etc. I think "Silent Sorrow" may be the best ambient track by a non-ambient artist.

I'm working on a mellow prog rock mix that I'm sure will include this Genesis tune as well.

Anyway, I've always wanted to use it in a mix so here it is. I used the track as the title for this mix but the music doesn't necessarily take on the sorrowful feel that the title suggests. I can personally attest to the fact that this mix works very for sleeping. Enjoy.

Wow, i love it. And i certainly love "Silent sorrow in empty boats". What a coincidence since i just use it in a mix i made with some exploratory music from different times. Check it on my profile if you can. It blends quite good with Benoit Pioulard and Trouble Books, artists which had almost nothing to do with Genesis.

I've been planning a mix for Fluid Radio containing Silent Sorrow In Empty Boats. Your mix has prompted me to finish it. Thanks.
