Format: Audio CD
As one half of German duo Funkstörung, Michael Fakesch, who also officiate as one half of head of electronica label Musik Aus Strom, released his solo album at the end of 1999. Described as a German equivalent to Autechre, Funkstörung take their influences from the hip-hop culture as well as from electro pioneers Kraftwerk. Marion is not dissimilar to the duo's Appetite For Disctruction. The music is very complex and abstract. Melodies are presented in their most minimal form, beats are aggressive and distorted, and sounds are like no others. Unlike Appetite..., there is no human intervention here, other than Fakesch himself. No voices, so songs, nothing. Marion is an instrumental record. The music is like a machine, tirelessly doing the same thing over and over. It doesn't evolve much, doesn't mutate. And that's probably the biggest difference between Fakesch and Autechre. Nevertheless, Marion, like Appetite..., remains an excellent electronica record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pared-down melodies and complex rhythms 6 April 2000
By Bryan O'Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Michael Fakesch is one of the members of German group Funkstorung, and his release "Marion" sounds similar in style to Funkstorung's music. However, it has simpler melodies, pared down to the point of being almost unobtrusive. The rhythm lines are beautiful, unveiling layers of complexity with each repeated listening.
As a yardstick for comparison, if you like some of Autechre's starker releases, or the minimalist electronica of To Rococo Rot, you will more than likely find this album very appealing. It is sufficiently distinct from its influences to be well worth listening to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rhythm-centered IDM 3 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This release from Michael Fakesch (one half of the IDM outfit Funkstorung) is less melodic than Funkstorung and focuses more on crisp, precise rhythm structures. Several of the tracks were previously available on the Demon 12" releases on Musik Aus Strom, but not all of those tracks are here. There are, however, some new tracks as well which make this release worthwhile for both newcomers and fans. Fans of Autechre and Funkstorung will not be disappointed by the clattering beats of "Marion."

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull IDM. 8 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Marion is the merging of new tracks and ones previously found on the Demon EP's. It is pure IDM, matching chunky, harsh beats with lighter synth melodies. They problem is the both the melodies and the beats are dull. It is like IDM by numbers. The beats sound garage oriented, never quite doing anything inparticular and some sounding very uninspired and sloppy. The melodies are quite tame and uninteresting... barely maintaining any depth or catchiness, while most IDM has one or the other. What interests me in IDM is the depth of production, which unusually involves either sparse, emotionally driven melodies or harsh, crafty beats. Marion has vague hints of this, but in general it has neither.
