German for Shark:

“It’s a fantastic album, and one which continues to mesmerise as you dissect these dense compositions and begin to make sense of them.” -ATTN Magazine

“a radiant set of ambient soundscapes embroidered with gestural detail and enriched with textural variety...” - Chicago Reader

All Are Welcome:

“despite the fact that the album is essentially a canvas of white noise, otherworldly drones, and astral dissonances, it achieves a remarkable sense of poignancy that holds things taut...” -Delusions of Adequacy

“All Are Welcome is a welcoming cluster of avant-jazz and improvisational rock on the verge of existence, like a fuzzy memory of a childhood Xmas morning where your parents stayed up all eve long drinking and smoking opium.” -PopMatters


“Like Hebden and Reid, Tilmann and Hess stoke swirling atmospheres of electronics-and-percussion improvisations, with Tilmann's vaporous washes and bass tones spread across an ever-evolving flow of percussive accents and patterns.” -Textura

Joshua Convey- Bass, Electronics Stephen Fiehn- Guitar, Electronics Steven Hess- Drums, Vibraphone, Electronics Joshua Convey, Stephen Fiehn, and Steven Hess (On, Pan American, Haptic) have been actively writing and performing as Fessenden since 2004. This Chicago/New York-based electro-acoustic trio creates distinct, atmospheric and progressive sound collages, at times weaving quietly subtle textures against harsh moments of volume, or low hums and buzzes against crisp percussion, while drones interplay with staccato chords. Each performance by this trio displays a delicate balance of acoustic and electronic sounds. Fessenden's approach to recording and releasing sound varies, yet consistently reflects the subtle movement within sessions.
