Peter Silberman Shares New Video Via MTV

“Impermanence at the Glass House” is a performance film in six parts by Derrick Belcham, featuring dancers Rebecca Margolick and Stephanie Crousillat. The film follows the arc of Impermanence, with “Ahimsa” following on from “Karuna”, "New York", "Gone Beyond" and “Maya.”

Acclaim for Impermanence

"The six tracks are minimalist to the point of vanishing, crafted from gently shimmering electric guitars and murmuring keyboards, while Silberman's soft, high voice, polished like fine silver, delivers a series of quietly emotive haikus.” - Uncut

"His multi-octave voice is as intense as Jeff Buckley’s or Anohni’s, but it’s vulnerable without being precious or cloying.” - The Guardian

"This is one of those potentially life-changing albums, with a depth traveling the prism from the physical to the mental to the emotional to the spiritual, but with no heavy hand, just a ton of thought, and a lot of loaded space and not knowing. Sometimes six songs is all it takes to say everything one can say, and sometimes it's all we need to hear. No wasted space, no wasted breath or tone. Just a six-song pilgrimage through human fragility.” - Under The Radar

“Though there are also occasional woodwinds, brass, keyboards and percussion, Impermanence is almost like an experiment in minimalism, to see how fully Silberman can deconstruct songs and still make them compelling. Quite a bit, as it turns out.” - Paste

"It’s truly compelling songwriting.” - Brooklyn Vegan

"An awesome concept album, changing the perception of ambient music one unplayed note at a time.” - The Rumpus
