Boomkat Product Review:
Christian Fennesz's follow up to 2004's Venice, newly reissued on a double 10" edition that includes all the tracks that apeared on the digital edition for the first time on vinyl.
The ten-minute title track gets us underway, opening with noise and digital detritus crackling like fireworks in the distance. Soon a flurry of symphonic guitar and electronics flood the mix, deploying oscillating tones and brittle acoustic guitar plucks that swell with majestic textural detail.
'The Colour Of Three' features Anthony Pateras who supplies nicely clanking prepared piano, placing emphasis on the instrument as a percussive device rather than a string instrument. 'Perfume For Winter' is more restrained, filled with contemplative acoustic flourishes and abrupt organ-driven chords that recall Endless Summer's most approachable moments.
'Glide' is a duet with Rosy Parlane which takes Fennesz's signature wall of sound into the stratosphere with an undercurrent of elegiac romanticism that might reasonably be compared to fellow notable Austrian, Gustav Mahler, specifically the well-known fourth movement of his 5th Symphony (once famously plundered by Robert Lippok for his Open/Close/Open release for Raster Noton).
