Fabio Keiner - Without Words Without Silence
In Fabio Keiner's fourth album for the Petcord netlabel, Without Words Without Silence, eerie overtone voices embedded into dissonant tone clusters create the unreal atmosphere of one's awakening within a dream. Within the prevailing dark and gloomy mood there is considerate variety in sound tanging from dampened voices, resonant drones and strings up to low frequency rumble. A stronger focus was on soundscapes with cinematic qualities, outlining the fear and tension of an unresolved conflict, rather than describing a melancholy mood which becomes evident in the stylistic means chosen.
