Monty Adkins’s “Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by Blow Up

La Crónica continua a dar conto di esperienze artistiche particolari e curate attraverso delle cassete dal formato più che adatto a un minutaggio abbastanza ridotto. In questo caso si tratta di musica per uns installazione di un pitore (Andy Fullalove) nella cattedrale di Bradford in occasione del restauro di un’opera (un paliotto d’altare) del pittore, […]

Emmanuel Mieville’s “Juryo: Durée de la vie de l’ainsi-venu” reviewed by The Sound Projector

Parisian composer Emmanuel Mieville has shown up here in the past with Four Wanderings in Tropical Lands (field recordings), Concret-Sens (a tribute to classical musique concrète) and Ethers (electronic drone music). On Juryo (CRÓNICA 126-2017), the plan is to explore a Buddhist text called the Lotus Sutra, and he uses this text’s “inspiration cycles” as […]

David Lee Myers’s “Superpositions” reviewed by Westzeit

David Lee Myers (früher auch als Arcane Device unterwegs) hat für die MC Superpositions (Crónica) seine Feedback-Apparate in den “sanft”-Modus versetzt und betreibt eine spartanische, aber konsequente Klangsynthese. Relativ wenige Ereignisse aus schmatzenden Schaltkreisen, diese aber bestens organisiert. Kein reines Experiment, sondern durchaus auch “Musik”. Für Menschen mit offenen Ohren. 5/5 Superpositions by David Lee […]

Monty Adkins’s “Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by Music Won’t Save You

Pressoché in contemporanea con “A Year At Usher’s Hill“, il suo lavoro neoclassico-ambientale maggiormente impressionistico, Monty Adkins propone due lunghe tracce su cassetta, realizzate in sinestesia creativa con il pittore Andy Fullalove. Come gli strati di colore danno forma a un’immagine, così l’artista inglese lungo i venti minuti ciascuna di “Sounds Of The Shadow” e […]

Greek composer Yiorgis Sakellariou creates deep listening electronic pieces in a dynamic musique concrete style. His first releases came in 2013. As of 2017, he has found a home on the excellent Crónica label, which released many of my favorite artists of recent years including @c. His 6th full length, “Stikhiya” is made up of […]

New release: David Lee Myers’s “Superpositions”

Witness the common phenomenon of feedback such as produced inadvertently through poorly configured microphones and loudspeakers in public amplification situations: the sound coming from the speakers finds its way back into the microphones and produces an uncomfortable squealing sound. The component elements are electronic and acoustic, the latter involving air movement and vibration of physical […]
