Silent Season is a music label influenced by the natural surroundings of British Columbia, Canada.

The sounds of Silent Season grew out of the connection between deep ethereal music and the rain forests of Vancouver Island. A soundtrack to some of the most radiant and aural beauty in the world.

Distributing music through lossless digital, limited edition CDs and vinyl records, using recycled materials when possible.

Sharing a vision with a family of artists from around the world, we hope you enjoy what you hear.

Sit back, close your eyes and listen.

More Information

"A project so introspective finds its ideal environment in the production of Silent Season, Canadian label deeply influenced by the landscape of British Columbia, as the sounds present in its release reflect the connection between the music deep, impalpable, dreamlike and the green forests of Vancouver Island."

Yuka - Episodes of Yesterday [SS19]
"Episodes Of Yesterday has four organic, subdued techno cuts, all made better—and all tied together—by Yuka's found sounds. Tastefully used, they give the release a warm and personal feel. First track "Drumkot" sounds like a departure point, its humming 4/4 kick and sonorous clatters seeming to pass by the voices that occasionally pop into focus, while "First Zoom" keeps moving forward with broken-beat drums, soft but insistent 16th-note motifs and swirling bird calls. "Umrao Is Waiting" is sublime. It's got dense, syncopated kicks and a resonant throb playfully filling up the low-end, and its voices are again fleeting, as lightly teased drones give way to beeping bits of melody and, finally, a rainstorm at the end. Last track "Akasha," whose half-time percussion comes overlaid with a small swarm of birds and tweaked electronics, winds things down with a faintly sinister edge."

ASC - Truth Be Told [SSCD15]
More Information

"There's a stillness to Clements' ambient composition that matches Silent Season's preoccupation with nature. These tracks are like field recordings from some imaginary world. There are rustles here and there, and implacable distant noises—carefully built ecosystems are contained within each one. Clements is a master of creating moods and setting scenes: "Hall Of The Gods" evokes a massive space with its yawning melodies, while the airy "Lucent Vessel" sends a chill through the room."

ASC - Time Heals All [SSCD14]
"This is one of the best ambient albums I've heard in a long time. What defines good ambient music is, of course, a matter of taste, but I find too often "ambient" means long-winded pieces with nothing to grab onto. Here, however, we get 18 tracks and two hours of gorgeous ambience that includes melody, texture, and occasional percussive elements. "I Share My Secrets With You" is a definite stand-out for its instantly memorable wordless female vocal hook, but every track here has a personality of its own. The album is well-paced, with tracks ranging from 3-8 minutes, so it never gets dull or overwhelming, despite its two-disc scope (I wish "Array" had been longer, but that's the one fault I can pick out). The cover shows a close-up picture of the moon, and nothing could be more appropriate; listening to this album is like floating in space, adrift from the earth, with all the beauty and melancholy that scenario entails. It seems destined to be an ambient classic, already fetching high prices online due to its limitation of 350 copies, and that status is certainly well-deserved."
Segue - Pacifica [SSCD13]
"Like most of Silent Season's beautifully decorated releases, Pacifica is consumed by nature—immense, enveloping nature. It's a tendency common in dub techno: the never-ending quest to capture the sublime. Of course, in the search to encapsulate the rumblings of the planet and the vast shifting of the tides, a lot of it ends up sounding stuffy and self-serious. But with the opener of Canadian producer Jordan Sauer's fourth album, it's immediately obvious that his approach is a little more down to earth than most. "West Coast Rain" eases the album into a lush landscape that's every bit as awe-inspiring, yet strangely inviting, as the incredible scene pictured on the cover."
ASC - The Light That Burns Twice As Bright [SSCD11]
"James Clements, better known as ASC, will release an ambient album later this month called The Light That Burns Twice As Bright. The album shows Clements continuing to push the limits of his own style. His usual forte is drum & bass, but even there he rejects the status quo in favor of "the Autonomic sound," i.e. the open-ended style defined by D-Bridge and Instra:mental's erstwhile podcast series—or as Clements puts it, "drum & bass that doesn't sound like drum & bass." On The Light That Burns Twice As Bright he leaves the drums behind altogether, with ten compositions of droning ambiance. The record will be his first on Silent Season, a label whose sound is inspired by its secluded home in the rain forests of Vancouver Island."
Djorvin Clain - Pattern of Thought [SSCD12]
Adam Michalak - Returning to Essence [SSD10]

"The whole album is super, track 7 is one of the favs, stops me in my tracks from getting anything else done. On a good system you'll discover the top notch sonics, wide and deep sound stage with pin point imaging. The mastering on this 44.1khz 16 bit album would give hi res a run for it's money. Very enjoyable album to listen to over and over."
Michael Mantra - Mountain / Stream [SSD09]

Rest in peace Michael Mantra (b.1950 d.2014)

The following text is written by a friend of Michael Mantra on his Facebook page.

"After finding an early cassette release of 'tranquil technology music' i first corresponded with Michael in late '80s; & over many years, received updates & releases, airmailed from his home in Oakland. our friendship grew. i admired & respected his creativity, & wanted the world to hear his music. i interviewed him for magazines & books, & introduced him to many friends in the music industry.

His home was filled with dusty books & analogue equipment, & often, over cups of green tea, he'd tell stories of his family life: his mother baking in the kitchen, listening to jazz on the wireless; his father returning from military service with curious instruments from faraway places; gongs from bali, Indonesia & java.

Michael loved nature, & loved synthesizers. he loved to learn, & loved to share. often he'd send me recipes, photographs, poetry, meditations, with flyers from places he'd performed. in early-mid '90s he'd create ambient environments at raves: "this scene is the only way to create new horizons; to change perception of sound and feeling... the people there are receptive to new technology." the combination of ancient & modern is what makes Michael mantra's music so pleasurable, so rewarding & so effective: simple synthesized melodies, keyboard-derived textures, field recordings from the pacific coast; sounds weaving with metallic vibrations & fusing with soaring tones that seduce the brain, entrancing listeners into the unconscious delta range of dream imagery.

Michael's intention was to “induce a meditative state that synchronizes brain wave frequencies" thereby releasing endorphins (the body’s natural opiates) to make listeners feel “Wholesome, refreshed and relaxed."

Metabolic alchemy, music as medicine, sound as therapy; this was techno-shamanism, & this was the gift Michael mantra gave the world. music that moved from altered to awakened to permanent states of consciousness.

So rest in peace old friend; you're often in my thoughts & i'm sure our paths will connect again, sometime, someplace.."
