The Negative Sound Of Silence

at

Musician Steve Cruikshank likes to take a well known song and replace the original harmony with the ’mirror’ or ‘negative harmony’, which can make for a curious but not entirely unpleasant cover: in this case, Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound Of Silence’ (1965).

    Not to oversimplify but it’s like R.E.M. and Simon and Garfunkel had a child, and that child took one of their parental group’s songs and sang/arranged it in the style of the other parental group’s style… and I guess maybe that child invited some friends over to help out too, seeing as how there’s a harmony and several instruments and generally I suppose these friends were on board with the whole vibe too…
