Name with no Sound

from the album SWEET HEARTACHE ©2008
Review of the album SWEET HEARTACHE...

Warren Pratten and Mark Favro are both sons of members of the Nihilist Spasm Band, and they grew up in an environment infused with music. But the contrast between their father's band and their own couldn't possibly be greater. Their album is calming, mellow, and melodic.

The changes from track to track are just subtle enough to keep you on your feet while still giving the entire album the feel of a unified whole. Some of them are mellow enough to put you to sleep. Others are dancable. Others have a kind of mystical feel. All of them are long, repeating certain musical patterns over and over again until they work their way into your consciousness.

After five minuites the rest of the world disappears and nothing exists but that pattern.

You don't mind, though. The pattern is always good.

Name With No Sound is a musical collaboration between Mark Favro and Warren Pratten. Our music is made up of pre-composed and live elements. Mark plays keyboards. Warren play guitar. Both of us contribute to the pre-composed backing tracks over which each person plays live. Our music is all original and draws from our musical backgrounds and interests. The results could be described as electronic and ambient. We meet roughly once a week to experiment with various musical ideas. Some of those ideas serve as a starting point from which we further refine into a composition. In addition, Mark is an accomplished filmmaker and our music has been used in conjunction with Mark's videos both in a live setting and on various internet websites such as Vimeo.
