“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by Sands

Recensendo il precedente CD della Crónica mi rammaricavo per l’occasione sprecata, ma con la certezza che presto si sarebbe presentata una nuova opportunità e l’etichetta non avrebbe sicuramente fallito il colpo. Ecco che la previsione, puntualmente, si avvera, ma con questo non mi sento affatto un mago poiché, visto il crescendo qualitativo proposto in pochi […]

“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by Blitz

(…) Kaffe Matthews, DJ Olive e Ikue Mori, entre outros, colaboram em faixas de Gaze. Estão lá, mas invisíveis. Contudo, são presenças essenciais, porque é essencial este processo de falsa neutralização. Note-se que os nomes se mantêm, assim como o da própria o.blaat, porque à invisibilidade está inerente a presença. Gaze é, portanto, um conjunto […]

“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by BBC

O.Blaat’s debut arrives with liner-note endorsement from premier highbrow turntablist Christian Marclay and a cover bearing distinctive images of installations by South Korean artist Helen Cho. The back cover in particular looks like a rendering of Helen Chadwick’s Piss Flowers in Body Shop soap. O.Blaat is Keiko Uenishi, a Japanese woman relocated to downtown NYC. […]

“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by Music Scan

Ein dünnes Zirren erklingt und breitet sich langsam zu einem dichten und schwer definierbaren Soundteppich aus, der der durch das metrisch wirkende Wabbern eine konkretere Form bekommt. Man sollte schon mit experimenteller Elektronikmusik etwas anfangen können, denn die großen Harmonie oder gar Harmonien wird man hier nicht finden. Stattdessen gibt es gleichsam interessant wie absurd […]

La délicatesse toute féminine de Keiko Uenishi participe à uma nouvelle option dans l’electronica minimaliste. Après de nombreuses collaborations scéniques, elle publie son premier album en deux actes. Two novels: gaze témoigne de sa volonté interactive en invitant parcimonieusement certains de ses collaborateurs fétiches. Des noms connus apparaissent autour de cette artiste énigmatique. Car O.blaat […]

Weil Blaat das Konzept “Audio-Environment” ernst nimmt, hält sie sich als Person bei Auftritten total heraus und lässt den mit dem Raum vernetzten Klang, der spannend genug ist, für sich sprechen. Collabs mit Kaffe Matthews oder Ikue Mori weisen den Weg … diese Erzählungen knistern vor Klarheit und Licht.

“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by D-Side

Au sein de la scène laptop, peu de musiciens explorent avec autant dácuité que la Japonaise Keiko Uenishi, alias O.Blaat, les implications de la mobilité de l’instrument et de son rapport à l’extérieur. Suite directe d’un travail de plusieurs années passées à transformar comptoirs de bar, manteaux, tables de ping-pong et autres sièges en tout […]

“Two Novels: Gaze / In the Cochlea” reviewed by Neural

Una giapponese a Brooklyn, dopo anni di progetti felicemente in bilico fra arte, musica e live performance, sotto la luce esile dei riflettori delle scene alternative di downtown, nascosta dietro lo schermo di un powerbook: per Keiko Uenishi (in arte O.Blaat) è adesso arrivata l’ora di un confronto oltre la cerchia stretta d’ammiratori definita dal […]
