“Still Important Somekind Not Normally Seen (Always Not Unfinished)” reviewed by Funprox

Microtonal composers Heimir Bjorgulfsson, Helgi Thorsson (both of Stilluppsteypa) and Pimmon performed at the Melkfabriek in Den Bosch and recorded this CD, which is their live set. The sound got edited by Robert Hampson (Main). The CD contains a mix between microtonal noise, clicks and drones, and sporadic electronic beats. This combination works really well […]

“Still Important Somekind Not Normally Seen (Always Not Unfinished)” reviewed by Sands

Racchiuso in una confezione da ‘flower power immalignito’ arriva il nuovo sensazionale, almeno per quanto riguarda la collaborazione, CD della Crónica. Si tratta di una performance che ha visto insieme sul palco l’australiano Pimmon e due terzi degli islandesi Stilluppsteypa. Le registrazioni provengono da una data in Olanda, al De Melkfabriek in Den Bosch, ma […]

“Still Important Somekind Not Normally Seen (Always Not Unfinished)” reviewed by Touching Extremes

It takes a while to fully enjoy this recording, which is best appreciable if you listen to it on shuffle play mode: that way, the “out of tune TV” effect of this schizophrenic enigma will show its complete efficiency. A complete lack of communication is reconfigured through an apparatus of strange codes, each one looking […]

“Still Important Somekind Not Normally Seen (Always Not Unfinished)” reviewed by Blitz

(…) Tem uma tendência lúcida subtil, longinqua na insinuação, mas que esparge disco com um humor residual. Afinal de contas, são três micro-roedores a devorarem um quadro eléctrico, com disputas frequentes por fusíveis e descargas perdidas. A tranquilidade da degustação domina, mas a devastação está lá, corrosiva. (…) É só desligar as luzes e eles […]

Deux Islandais et un Australien sont dans un studio, Ils se racontent des histoires de nature, de compromis entre nature et culture, de soundscape digitaux, d’imitation du réel. Staalplaat et les Pays Bas semblent avoir joué un rôle prépondérant dans la genèse de ce projet et dans l’entremêlement de ces 3 individualités. Heimir Björgulfsson y […]

Si l’ensemble du catalogue du label portugais est assez expérimental, on tient ici peut-être l’oeuvre la plus difficile d’accès que l’on ait pu écouter sur celui-ci. Difficile de dire donc si cette impression est due à la matière originelle, à savoir ces deux concerts du trio australo-islandais, ou bien au montage de Robert Hampson. Chaque […]

Le label Cronica est plutôt dans une phase ascendante. Cet éditeur portugais est déjà assez prolifique et au fil des références on sent que la label a pris de plus en plus d’assurance, accumulant les risques et les coups de cÅ“ur. Cette quatorzième référence est bien à l’image de ce que Cronica essaye de faire […]

…is een compositie van de Ijslanders Heimir Björgúlfsson en Helgi Thorsson, samen met de Australièr Paul Gogh a.k.a. Pimmon. Het stuk werd live opgenomen in De Melkfabriek in Den Bosch. De heren zorgen voor een ruw, gekarteld geluidsveld waarin kleine oneffenheden voor drastiche hertekeningen zorgen. Zeer de moeite. svs

Das portugiesische Label Crónica bleibt seiner Veröffentlichungspolitik visuell und musikalisch treu. Die Zusammenarbeit der Digital- und Akustiktüftler Björgúlfsson aus Island, Pimmon aus Australien und Thorsson, ebenfalls aus Island. Letzterer mag einigen von seiner Gründung der kultigen Band Stilluppsteypa ein begriff sein. Zusammen haben sie eine abwechslungsreiche Klangskulptur erarbeitet, voller Ãœberraschungen und eigenwilliger Kreationen. Ein Soundtrack […]

Recorded live at the Melkfabriek in Den Bosch the recording was then treated to careful constructive editing by London’s Robert Hampson at Thirst. With nine individual unnamed tracks that chatter and slide into one […]
