Graeme Truslove’s “Intuited Architectures” reviewed by Bodyspace

Enquanto arte, a arquitectura é uma das mais antigas da humanidade. Primeiro existiram as casas e os templos, «meios com vista a uma exteriorização: a cabana, a habitação do deus, pressupõem habitantes, homens, imagens de deuses» [Hegel, Estética]. Milénios depois, a arquitectura ganhou a sua própria teoria, com De Architectura de Vitrúvio: as construções deveriam […]

Monty Adkins’s “Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by Chain DLK

“Shadows And Reflections” aims for ‘a sense of meditation, contemplation and relaxation’ as it develops sonic ideas originally created for an audiovisual exhibit at Bradford Cathedral in 2016 that drew inspiration from the restored altarpiece and stained glass windows of the cathedral. Designed for the cassette format, it’s two twenty-minute pieces of warm, comforting, eventless […]

“Hiku Komuro, Hikikomori” reviewed by Bodyspace

Hikikomori é uma palavra japonesa para designar adolescentes ou adultos que se abstêm de ter “vida social”, optando pelo isolamento e pela clausura. Para muitos, são gente que não cresceu e que nunca foi capaz de superar quaisquer problemas mentais que os afectem. Para outros, são monges dedicados que optam, do alto da sua liberdade, […]

“Superpositions” reviewed by Vital Weekly

Maybe you have been reading Vital Weekly for such a long time that when you read the name David Lee Myers you will automatically think ‘Arcane Device’, which was his moniker from the late 80s to the mid 90s, followed by a retirement. In recent years however he revived Arcane Device, as well as releasing […]

“Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by AmbientBlog

With his impressive back catalogue, Monty Adkins has become one of my favourite artists (if you’re not familiar with his work, don’t forget checking out Four Shibusa, Rift Patterns, Borderlands and Unfurling Streams). So it’s great news when two new albums are released almost simultaneously: The first of these two is Shadows And Reflections, released […]

“Juryo: Durée de la vie de l’ainsi-venu” reviewed by Neural

The connections between the radio-drama and the experimental music should be an object of study. Some mature reader may remember the strong relationship between these fields, especially during this age where the offline fetishism re-activates forgotten or obsolete formats. The Paris composer Emmanuel Mielville studied sound engineering in a cinema school and later learned the […]

“The Waste Land” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Het is de consequentie als je dezelfde titel gebruikt die T.S. Eliot aan zijn wereldberoemde lange gedicht uit 1922 gaf. Onwillekeurig vraag je je af of er een relatie tussen beide werken is. Moest Luca Forcucci aan Eliots meesterproef denken, toen hij het basismateriaal voor een compositieopdracht ontving? Hij was gevraagd om bij een documentaire […]

“Intuited Architectures” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Het werk van Graeme Truslove laat zich opdelen in ‘vaststaande’ elektroakoestische composities en live improvisaties. Voor ‘Intuited Architectures’ heeft hij die uitersten, zoals de titel al aangeeft, geprobeerd samen te brengen. Zorgvuldig opgebouwde composities, waarin de kleinste details zorgvuldig hun juiste plek kregen toebedeeld, manipuleerde hij in optredens met zelfgebouwde elektronica. Aanvankelijk was het een […]
