Your Naked Ghost Comes Back at Night

(Type; US: 21 Jul 2009; UK: 21 Jul 2009)

A dark, ambient masterpiece is made available once again with the release of Your Naked Ghost Comes Back at Night by the Franco-American electronic duo On, French composer Sylvain Chaveau and Chicago percussionist Stephen Hess of Pan American. Originally released in 2004 on Les Disques du Soleil et de l’Acier, but made available again by the always-impressive Type label, the release highlights a collaboration with Norwegian dark ambient pioneer Helge Sten, also known as Deathprod. Culling three hours of source material from an extended On studio jam, Sten hurls the prepared sound waves of Hess and Chaveau’s compositions even further out into the abyss, adding a sinister sense of field atmospherics to the already dense and quiet tones. Warning: Don’t listen to this alone at night.
