“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 […]

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

Destrutturazione sintetica e materiali concreti, stratificati o ad incastro forzato. Nel classico stile della label portoghese, field recordings (belli e molto quelli raccolti in Asia) e manipolazione digitale. L’effetto, è una coltre sfocata e sfrigolante a ricoprir passaggi di materia viva che accendono più di un’immagine in fondo alla scatola cranica. Elettroacustica evocativa e tumefatta […]

“Under my Skin” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Een kleine verrassing bij Crónica is de nieuwe uitgave van de Litouwse componist Gintas K. Hij is geen onbekende – ook niet op dit Portugese label – maar meneer K komt hier met zijn eerste uitgave op cassette. De reden om voor die geluidsdrager te kiezen blijft onduidelijk. Belangrijker: ook inhoudelijk is ‘Under My Skin’ […]

“Nowhere: Exercises in Modular Synthesis and Field Recording” reviewed by The Sound Projector

We haven’t heard a great deal from Jos Smolders, the Dutch musician who began his career studying architecture, outside of his contributions to a compilation of sorts called International Musique Concrète Assembly where he appeared with fellow Netherlandish droner Frans de Waard. But that was in 2007. It would have been nice to have heard […]
