Complete your Fennesz, Sakamoto collection. Fennesz provides the sparse,, sometimes-hazy atmospheric canvas upon which Sakamoto sprinkles his minimalist piano tinkles. Sakamoto's piano sings with emotive longingness (Haru, Trace, Abyss), flows like an unsettled river (Amorph, Mono, Kuni, Abyss), or flirts with the air with its chromatic sonorities (Aware, Oto, Cendre, Glow, Kokoro, Trace).
And Cendre doesn't disappoint. Sakamoto is back at the piano, this time bathed in a warm lush of ambient bliss, as flooded by Fennesz. The reverberations of drone-like pads almost swallow the notes whole, occasionally letting them cut through the descending fog, and shoot up like a sparkling reflection of a dying star
Fennesz provides the weightless electronic backdrop, into which Sakamoto drops precise chords that ripple the aural surface like smooth pebbles dropped into a pool.
The second collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and Christian Fennesz is vastly different from their 2005 EP Sala Saint Cecilia. Like Harold Budd and Brian Eno's Ambient 2/Plateaux of Mirror and The Pearl, Cendre consists of one person playing delicate pieces on an acoustic piano while another fills the ample spaces with electronic treatments. The second collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and Christian Fennesz is vastly different from their 2005 EP Sala Saint Cecilia.

Sakamoto, who has recently been blending the micro end of digital music with laptop and piano, would seem to be a natural counterpoint for the processed guitar-scapes Fennesz is renowned for. But fix-ups, always good in theory, don’t often turn out to be the hoped-for perfect match. The balance of power shifts towards Sakamoto and wobbles through most of the album without ever finding the pulsing accord of ‘Sala Santa Cecilia’. The result of two years of file exchanging, ‘Cendre’ is loaded with sad dissonance and a tension that sounds uncomfortably like well-intentioned match-making gone wrong.
