Invisibility [The Foundry]

World-fusion composers Fang and Weingarten return to their pure ambient roots on this lovely and intriguing collaboration. The album’s nine pieces maintain a more-or-less consistent atmosphere throughout, wherein Weingarten’s yearning, introspective electric slide guitar phrases sensuously commingle with Fang’s shimmering synthetic rhythms and textures. Despite seemingly obvious comparisons to the music and methodology of Fripp & Eno, Invisibility only superficially resembles their work. It is, rather, a profoundly beautiful statement from two veteran ambient musicians with their own distinct musical perspectives and personalities.
