“Product 02” reviewed by Data.Wave

Internet is a giant sound supermarket, with music labels supplying products and Ran Slavin is a master chef of the high quality music. Product 02 record offers an exquisite dish of sound design with a desert of music metamorphosis. This is quite a light record with a distinct therapeutic effect. I went through a lot […]

“Product 02” reviewed by Paris Transatlantic

The disc contains two works, “Tropical Agent”, a nine-movement composition, and “Ears In Water”, separated by thirty seconds of “Product Silence”. There’s something smooth and seductive about Slavin’s work, which manages obliquely to reference ambient techno – the terraced mix, the nearly regular click backbeat, the lush string carpet (check out “Search for Compassion”) – […]

Melhor sucesso tem o «Product» que reúne duas facetas bem distintas de um mesmo músico, Ran Slavin, tratadas, devido até à natureza da colecção, como se de dois criadores se tratasse. Se o Slavin da primeira metade, «Tropical Dance», passa por um conceito do “sampling” devedor das manipulações bem-humoradas e joviais de Carl Stone, o […]

L’album est donc divisé en deux parties, toutes les deux à peu près sur le même ton, tandis que c’est la construction des morceaux qui change un peu. La première partie, Tropical Agent, composée de neuf morceaux, propose autant de variations sur des boucles acoustiques complètement retravaillées au laptop, afin de les rendre plus fragiles, […]

experimental bands and now does audio-visual work. He works with computer processed sound and field recordings. Much to my surprise, the main instrument being fed into the computer is the guitar, which is rather joyfully being processed in the first work ‘Tropical Agent’, which are nine tracks in total. In a strange the music is […]

Aqui, a primeira parte é ocupada com “Tropical Agent”, título que nos remete logo para os campos do romance policial. O resto da sugestão é dado pelos títulos dos temas, tais como “Silent Siren”, “Guitar String / Empty Streets”, “Flat tire at the dead sea” ou “Triggers of Violence”. Escutados, são registos bem menos lineares […]

Dir kompositionen offenbaren ihre eigenartige und fragile Schönheit in langsamer und konzentrierter Entwicklung durch separate Tracks, die in bizarr konstruierter Feinarbeit aufeinnder hin arrangiert sind. Das so entstehende Panorama aber ist organisch und sinnlich.

I wish more laptop electronica so readily betrayed its human origins as this CD, emananting warmth from the zeros and ones, however paradoxical that sounds. This reviewer first encountered Ran Slavin in the role of remix artist on Walking in Jerusalem by Random Inc. (aka Sebastian Meissner). His CD is the second installment in Crónica’s […]

Doch genug zu Äußerlichkeiten, es ist ja auch noch Musik auf der CD: Der erste Teil des “Produkts” steht unter dem Namen “Tropical Agent” und besteht größtenteils aus bearbeiteten Samples, die mich ein wenig an mediterrane Gitarren erinnern. Das Puzzle aus diesen Fragmenten wird noch durch ein paar digitale Glitches umrahmt, so dass eis recht […]

“Product 02” reviewed by Ikonen

Das Portugiesische Label Cronica hat sich seit einiger Zeit einen Namen mit konzeptionellen Veröffentlichungen experimenteller Musik gemacht. In der Reihe ‘Product’ werden jeweils zwei Werke eines oder verschiedener Künstler vorgestellt und zugleich miteinander konfrontiert. Dabei wird auch auf die gesplittete Formatierung der klassischen Schallplatte zurück verwiesen. Jede CD der Reihe ist zudem ausgestattet mit dem […]
