“Erotikon” reviewed by Vital Weekly

Jorge Mantas, the man behind The Beautiful Schizophonic, is a romantic man – at least that’s what I think, as I never met him. For the press release he wrote a long text, dealing with erotics – and thus he creates a dreamworld of his own. His music, through the years he’s been active, is also of a romantic nature. String like computer sounds, a bit like Gas did, form the basis of all his compositions. Here he gets help from Yui Onodera, Sleeping Me and Christina Vantzou doing voices. Thus he carves out a fine niche of his own. Nothing abstract, nothing ‘nothing’, no mystery – just a plain guy (his own words) with a love for beautiful women and beautiful textured music. Ambient? Sure. Microsound? Of course. Something special? Mwah… no, not really. If you take the music face value, what is left is a beautiful woven tapestry of sound, very ambient, most suitable for long evenings near the fireplace. Nothing special. What makes it special is the context in which he brings us this music – that is a particular daring thing, to be so open about it. Nice indeed.
