Faust - Disconnected















Despite being a bit biased (first and foremost as a devoted Faust fan for more then 25 years but also due to the fact I mixed and mastered the bonus track on the "special edition") Me thinks this might be the best thing Faust released since their glory days in the early 70's and makes it a real cause for celebration.
All the special ingredients that make the Faust experience are here and a few new ones added. Pioneering the usage of the studio as a creative compositional tool. A mix of electronics, rock beats, extensive editing, acoustic instruments, musique concrete, and industrial atmospheres. There is a strong sense of tension and suspense running trough the cd. And despite the obvious huge amount of studio work obviously it took to make this it still feels organic and cohesive.
Here is a short audio sample of Lass Mich the first track.
In April I had the chance to actually see and enjoy the live Faust experience as they were headlining the RIO Festival in Carmeaux. While doing the sound for the Present 2 Pianos show I noticed a man sitting right next to the mixing desk watching the whole sound check. At the end he approached me and complimented on the sound and asked me were am I from I told him from Tel Aviv Israel and then asked him were he was from and he told me something like: "I'm originally French but living in Germany" and when I asked him what exactly he was doing there he told me he came to play with his band in the festival -it took me a second or 2 to realize I was talking to Jean Herve' Peron of Faust Wow ! Anyway we had a nice lunch together and I made him take off and give me his only 71 min T shirt (he is extremely nice to fanboys like me).
We stayed in touch and I sent him some of my mixing works -He especially liked the Fred Frith & Chris Cutler Live in Tel Aviv recordings I made in 2005 (god know when these will ever see the light of day...). That led to me mixing "Hard Rain" one of the songs from the live show at the RIO festival

...And the good news is that Faust will probably be coming to their first show here in the Holy Land (2 shows one in Tel Aviv and one in Jerusalem) later this year and I will be doing the sound (probably will record them too).

To be a upright benign being is to procure a make of openness to the mankind, an skill to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can front you to be shattered in uncommonly extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly important with the condition of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a conviction in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a treasure, something fairly feeble, but whose extremely precise attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
