silent cities

Described as "The Real Deal" by Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

SC is the alias of experimental recording artist, Simon Maddison.


Based somewhere in the North of England.



Influenced by time, natural LANDscapes, and the human condition V.2




"Sounds like" AMBIENT whale-calls sucked in to a maelstrom and then blasted in to the outer reaches of space by NASA.





Or more SIMPLY like a transient Spectral-Orb/20 something narcissist with a shit guitar hiding behind a pedalboard.
