Cendre was recorded across 2004 and 2006 with the pair responding to and building upon each other’s compositions, Sakamoto working in NYC and Fennesz in Vienna.

The resulting album fuses the “unstructured and imaginative qualities of improvisation with the satisfying sculpture of composition,” explains the label.

It follows the release of Sakamoto’s Minamata score, in July.
