Coming out of the underground DIY scene of Birmingham, Alabama,
Silica Gel's sound is a unique synthesis of early medieval music with
electronics and improvisation. The cor

e of their debut album adapts
a series of songs from the 14th century satirical text Roman de Fauvel,
which tells the story of a vain donkey who rises to prominence in the
French royal court. Silica Gel transforms this music into a fitting political
allegory for our time through distortion & repetition of language, layering
time upon itself in a conceptual historical loop. The music evokes the
sound of peasants being churned through the wheels of industry...
disembodied voices return to us from the other side of a several hundre
year technological process.
