Silas Hite released VOL. 1: Sounds
for a Dinner Party on April 11th - a soundtrack which acts as the perfect set list to accompany an evening of fine dining, easy conversation, and relaxation. Violin, mandolin, accordion, cello, bassoon, and more, play off one another to create a soundtrack for a dinner party to remember.
Silas created a soundtrack which honors the delicate combination, balance, and joy that happens when friends and family converse around a dinner table. His inspiration for the album stems from 60's era mood records, when albums for specific activities were popular. "As a composer, I am always trying to set a mood, but it is usually for film or TV shows. This album was an opportunity to set the mood for a real-life event," says Silas on what inspired him to make the soundtrack.
With this album, Silas hopes to remind people to be truly present in their human interactions. "In today's phone-centric world, you can quickly order food and pick music with a flick of your thumb. That's great - sometimes. My hope is that this record helps people re-connect with intention and deliberate living. A dinner party host makes deliberate menu choices and sets intention when planning for a party. This record is designed to be part of that deliberate choice and intention."
