We've been friends with
Tara since before the birth of Silber Records, so it's a real honor to
finally get to work with her on Silber. She's one of the rare rock
goddesses that is more than eye-candy & has creative artistic vision
well as incredible charisma & integrity.
- Brian John Mitchell, Silber Records
A brief introduction to Tara
artist Tara Vanflower, best known for her work on keyboards and vocals
with darkwave artists Lycia, has a history in music performance and writing
dating back over 10 years. Blessed with a multi-octave voice capable
of many diverse forms and an eclectic writing style, Tara has created selected
ambient works showcasing the darker side of her compositional skills.
Tara is currently promoting
the long-awaited follow up to her debut solo album This Womb Like
Liquid Honey entitled My Little Fire-Filled Heart.
This release was composed, performed, and produced entirely by Tara using
her talented voice, traditional and improvised percussive instruments,
and some guitar work. This album is very ambient and organic.
Her vocal ranges from the playfully seductive to the passionately aggressive.
Utilizing loops to fill out the background, Tara has created a blissful
wash of echoing chimes, throbbing basses, and howling choruses.
The pieces on this album
are very free form in tempo, but blissfully appealing to ears attuned to
more "experimental" artists such as Einstuerzende Neubauten, Current 93,
and Nurse With Wound. In songs such as “I Lost The Moon," for example,
Tara creates a musical piece that is more "textured" than "composed."
A soft choir of heavy breathing duels with an improvised guitar track and
Tara’s aching voice for control of the listener.
This album features an
excellent rendition of Death In June’s “The Honor Of Silence”, as well
as the traditional piece “A Conversation With Death”. Spanning 10
tracks, this release is certain to provide hours of blissful sonic seduction.
