The world is full of instruments. To hear their songs, all one needs to do is be tacit.

Recorded in 4 locations over the span of 3 years, Tacit features four tracks of ambient on-location audio that is later manipulated through various digital effects to enhance one perceived narrative within the captured natural sonic experiences of the sources.


released October 21, 2016

All songs recorded and performed by Chris Lee.
