"Able to reveal the mystique of decaying bodies (these morbid humming of dipterans which we could imagine in Pharmakon), to probe the wormholes and to sound the death kneel of the human kind in a same movement, FWF aligns himself with Nietzsche and Burroughs but especially ends up sounding like the Lovecraft of Dark Ambient, for this interpretation of old and new (we can hear some Glitch and Industrial as well as contemporary classical music on ‘Devotion’, at the cross-road between Ligeti’s liturgical torments, the layers of Eno’s refined synths, the minimalist and frightening tension of John Carpenter, the evanescent post-goth lyricism of Trent Reznor and saturated outcrops of Ben Frost), but also visceral and savant, esoteric and monstrous, elegant and swarming. Captivating!"
"With his first album "Skeptics", Fabien W. Furter from Nancy treads on sound designers' worlds as Demdike Stare, Lucy, Donatto Dozzy or Ben Frost. [...] A bunch of rugged landscapes which borrows from concrete music as much as from drone music, electro experimental music and ambiant. [...] FWF banishes the borders, throwing them on thin felts of haunted pianos with unhealthy atmospheres, strangely captivating, kneading the matter as we shape stars...Vital."
"FWF music will highlight your toughest emotions and your dirtiest thoughts. Indeed, the album is very dark, sticky or grimy.
The atmosphere of this album is pretty special. Worthy of the soundtracks from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and inspired by the creations of Brian Eno, FWF creates something quite singular to make our ears more curious over the pieces.
Skeptics is a pretty hard to listen. It requires a certain amount of replay. But if you put yourself in good conditions, you can enjoy all the sap of this disc that will immerse you in a disturbing journey.”
"Vivisection of the blind spot of life, this part of ourselves whose each one has its own code, its own Kafkaesque metamorphosis. With "Incipit contradictio" revealing a dark and introspective approach, "Skeptics" continues the path at the edge of the cliff. This profound music deserves that we affix on it some images worthy of the best scenarios by Cronenberg or Lynch …"
