ON - YOUR NAKED GHOSTS (2LP)


"The project 'On' is the collaboration between French composer/producer Sylvain Chauveau and Chicago-based percussionist Steven Hess (Haptic, Pan American), but the duo has always had a rather strange way of presenting its work. The concept is simple: the duo record an album in the studio, and then place it in the hands of a third party. The resulting work is then 'remixed' (for want of a better word) and the album is complete. This time around the three hours of delicate source material was handled by none other than Norwegian master of dark ambient Helge Sten aka Deathprod. Sten's characteristic smudged ambience is evident as he submerges Chauveau and Hess's compositions beneath a swamp of cavernous reverb and synthesized smoke. Hess's patented percussive drones are filtered into the distant buzz of an insect's wings, and Chauveau's prepared guitar becomes a tectonic rumble from another continent. At times it is difficult to discern where On stops and Deathprod begins. Like only the finest records in the dark ambient genre, 'Your Naked Ghost Comes Back At Night' guides you to another world for its sixty-minute duration." (label info)
