Silver has released four albums and several EPs. In 2015 he released two albums within two weeks: Radiance and Submission on July 31, and The Colours of Life on August 14.
Originally from Montreal, Silver became interested in electronic music at an early age. Self-taught, he cites Peter Gabriel, DJ Shadow, the Yellow Magic Orchestra and Talk Talk as important influences.
His first 7" single 'You Hear Colours/Invitation to Love' was released on the 8th March 2009 on the Acéphale label. The title of his first EP Panesian Nights was chosen in reference to the developer of Japanese erotic video games.
In addition to his own recordings, Silver has also remixed songs for other artists, including Holy Ghost!, Crystal Castles, Sally Shapiro, The Presets, Health, Azari & III, Harald Grosskopf and Owen Pallett.
In 2014, Silver co-wrote and co-produced the songs "A Power" and "What You Wanted" on How To Dress Well's album "What Is This Heart?".
