The Silent Earth

BURG

BURG feat. Tara Busch, I Speak Machine

“The Silent Earth (end credits)” is the first single from the upcoming BURG album "The Silent Earth."

When BURG started writing the new album in 2018, it slowly turned into an imaginary soundtrack that began telling the tales of a silent earth, long lost friends and family, and a planet scorched deeply by the chaos it has been subjected to.

The album is heavily influenced by early 70's and 80's sci-fi movies, from back in the day when the stories were slower and took longer time to tell because they were important to the director, and set the foundation and style of the genre.

One of the missing pieces when the album got close to completion was the last track, the one that plays at the end of the movie while the end credits are rolling, the track that gives the listener a slight feeling of hope from all the despair.

BURG paired up with I Speak Machine for a collaboration, Tara Busch lending her unique voice and aesthetics to the title track. The final result is a blend of I Speak Machine and BURG in the best way imaginable, a dystopian tune with a small shimmer of hope.

BURG is releasing a vinyl single with “The Silent Earth (end credits)” as the A-side. The track on the B-side, “The Quiet Earth” is exclusive to the single. The single is limited to 200 copies only, and is a special long play 7" 33rpm blue colored vinyl.

Including in the release is a digital only bonus track "Altered States Of Emptiness". This is an outtake from the upcoming full length album coming later this year.

You can download digital versions of all three tracks after the vinyl has been purchased and payment has been confirmed.

About BURG:

BURG is the project of Jouni OIlila, originally hailing from Sweden / Europe, with a long legacy in the electronic music scene since the 80's. Since 2011, BURG works out of Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia where he writes new chapters as a one-man project taking the audio / visual experiences to a new level.

His music revolves around instrumental dreamy pieces, blending the work of heroes like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, taking their sounds into 21st century using modern upbeat atmospheres and creamy synth leads. The BURG signature sound is instantly recognizable upon the first beats of each track. This single is no exception.

About I Speak Machine:

I Speak Machine are vocalist and synth-nerd Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis. Together, they make brooding soundtracks and horror/sci-fi films, creating audio and visual in unison to give both elements equal prominence. The result is a “live score film”, where all screenings of the film are accompanied by Tara perfoming the score live.
