about

“The Failure of Words” is a touchstone in Yang’s evolution. This album, unlike the others, aims no more to sound like in live situation but is a musical process itself.

The idea behind the project was to express the inability, as human beings, to really communicate with our species, always experiencing conflict, disharmony and delusion. Only art, love, are able to convey our deepest feelings and ideas. Words failed us.

This album is linked to the art of Bruno Mendonça, whose work is in a big part inspired by the deprivation of communication, the impossibility to deliver a message. Bruno passed away in November 2011 before Frédéric and he could give shape to their collaborative album project.

Recorded in different studios then mixed and produced in Berlin by Markus Reuter and Benjamin Schäfer, the album “The Failure of Words” has been built for a recording. Not only rough guitars here, but also different keyboards, acoustic guitars, some special sound treatments, and a very dedicated and sophisticated production.
