Silvia Kastel – voice studies – cassette release through my dance the skull records’

Silvia Kastel has a cassette release in her own right as part of the ‘voice studies’ series curated by the London based tape label my dance the skull from which we’ve been totally taken by ‘body’. Purely conceived utilising just the voice and no other instruments, indeed we too had to double take thinking that what we were hearing was a didgeridoo. We here have always been admiring of throat harmonies with Beta Lactam Ring’s Soriah swiftly calling to mind, it’s a style much requiring of a fair amount of discipline and technique in manipulating the voice here done perfectly by Ms Kastel whose use of tonalities in so much as shifting seamlessly from dark to light is, it has to be said, quite a listening spectacle not least because she manages to concentrate the would be listeners ear to something that translates as being possessed of a mesmeric and meditative ethnic earthbeat charm.
