- Something That Has Form & Something That Does Not (Reworked By Fennesz) by On (Sylvain Chauveau)
9/10 Ant Staff review, 22 July 2010
This is the third album from the duo of Sylvain Chauveau and Steven Hessunder. The source material was created through improvisations and then handed over to main man Christian Fennesz and then completely re-worked. Yes Fennesz! Although there is no mention of him on the cover, so it's not immediately obvious. The album opens with 'The Inconsolable Polymath' which is an exercise in sustained frequencies and tension. Not unlike some BJ Nilsen stuff really. Things soon pick up pace with 'Blank Space' a dark and mysterious journey into the void with sound reverberating around an abyss, all with Fennesz's idiosyncratic styling: drone, hum and crackly textures. 'Something That Has Form And Something That Does Not' has live drums and and keys and is respectfully treated with Fennesz jut adding a little of his magic to the mix. 'A Tardy Admission That The Crisis Is Serious' is the most intense track with throbbing low end rumbling and splashy cymbal flourishes. The album closes with ' The Sound of White' which is very pretty with prepared guitar sounds, crackle and some intoxicating sparkles. This could pretty much be new Fennesz record. Most enjoyable and recommended.
