Noise in Your Eye: Limbo-Lines-for-Strings (2020) 

'A sublimely beautiful film score composed by Adrian Chivers & Daniel Pennie'.
Wings of Desire: Directed by Wim Wenders (1987) 
String Arrangement: Julian Kershaw, Solo Cello: Caroline Dale

We have always been fans of Wim Wenders films, from Alice in the Cities, Paris, Texas to The End of Violence and Buena Vista Social Club, but it has always been Wings of Desire that holds that special place and is one of Wender’s most stunning achievements.

It remains one of the most beautiful, heartfelt movies ever made, and will always be an inspiration – thank you Wim Wenders.

The original Limbo-Lines can be found on NIYE’s debut album available on all global platforms - OUT NOW.

SHOWCASE 2020

Noise in Your Eye was originally formed in Box, Wiltshire in 2007 by long-term collaborators musician/producer Adrian Chivers & musician/artist Daniel Pennie. A duo of experimentally focused musicians, who bring together elements of jazz, modern composition, film-score, electronica, ambient and free improvisation.

​The duo's deep-set ability to craft music intuitively and impulsively, stems from a desire to avoid typical processes or generic structures. Since its conception, the band's original source material has been primarily culled from live improvisations. What follows is a gradual process of emphasising the melodic lines which have occurred during the performances. This approach gives the music a unique sound; it’s formed spontaneously in the room, then refined to create a definitive composition.

A decade of such sonic adventures has resulted in ten eclectic compositions that make up NIYE’s compelling debut. It is made even more momentous by a line-up of distinguished guests whose diverse range of performances bring depth and colour to the imaginary soundtracks. To listen to this visual-music is to drop immediately into a shimmering and highly cinematic universe… the result is as much potent as it is sublime.

 

SCENT (INTRODUCING NIYE ENSEMBLE)

‪NIYE:PRESS

"Noise In Your Eye is a project by Adrian Chivers and Daniel Pennie. Boasting heavyweight contributions from Keith Tippett, Michael Giles, Nick Mason, and others, every track offers a singular sound-world that variously touches upon a hushed minimalism, deep rock grooves, cinematic vistas and jazzy abstraction.

Twanging guitars, brushed percussion, darting strings, trickling piano and nebulous drifts of brass revolve in twinkling constellations that form ravishing melodies.

There's an air of intense spontaneity about this album that belies the painstaking editing required to pull all these strands together so seamlessly.

Incredibly exciting and, in places, profoundly moving, this is a contender for album of the year.” (Sid Smith 2020)

"Noise In Your Eye – NIYE Records

Instrumental Duo enlist Nick Mason and Others for Debut Album.

Listening blindfolded to Noise In your Eye, there’s something about its shape and feel, with themes and motifs that accrete then dissolve almost organically, that recalls electric Miles Davis – albeit in a rockier vein – and Tortoise offshoot Isotope 217. This might partly be due to the fact that it was created out of live ensemble improvisations with subsequent edits and reworkings. Adrian Chivers’ assorted sounds and Daniel Pennie’s guitars carry a lot of the melodic work here and the featured drummers include Nick Mason, Michael Giles and Kasabian’s Ian Matthews.

Limits of Control is a polyrhythmic stew with strings shimmering in and out of the frame, while Zombie Johnson begins with a syncopated conversation between double bass and drums, with trumpet, sax, electronics and FX’d guitar joining in. Keith Tippetts’s piano lines add extra spice. Tippett plays beautifully throughout the impressionistic, textural Touch The Water shaping pellucid Bill Evans-like chords that fracture into dissonant runs. Noise in Your Eye might not be the first group to make music in this way, but this is a dazzling, inspired album that reveals its subtle details over repeated plays"(
