“Flow” reviewed by Auf Abwegen

Die Computerwelt öffnet sich zusehends für andere Quellen. Ging es vor ein paar Jahren noch darum zu zeigen, was innerhalb dieser abgeschlossenen Welt alles für Sounds möglich waren, so geht es heute eher um einen Dialog und das Durchbrechen von Ästhetiken, die einer bestimmten Produktionsweise geschuldet sind. Flow ist genau das: ein Fluß aus warm-pulsierenden […]

“Flow” reviewed by Sans Zine

In “Morte a vele spiegate” di C. P. Snow, un giallo che al momento sto leggendo, a un certo punto c’è scritto: ‘Tutta la critica… (teatrale) …è una lotta tra le cose che i propri sentimenti approvano e le cose che il proprio gusto raffinato reputa ridicole’. Quali sono i criteri da utilizzare nel valutare […]

“Flow” reviewed by e/i magazine

Often it is not enough to be dear to the other—one feels compelled to be fatal to them. Tangled in the maw of long, violin-like sonorities, shards of jack-plug static and nightmarish boomings suggestive of cavernous depths, the strangely neutral voice of Filipa Hora—overdubbed and pitchshifted variously up and down—bears out just this fear, musing […]

Attention, ceci est un disque Cronica !!! Comme d’habitude avec ce label, on est partagé entre l’a priori positif (on a rarement été déçu par les sorties du label portugais), et l’appréhension d’avoir a faire à un disque un peu plus difficile que les autres, conceptuel, abscons. Cronica Electronica est toujours à la limite, mais […]

Ebenso abgegangen und -gefahren: Joaquims Versuch, die Stimme als nahezu nackte Form der menschlichen Expression mit Computern zu verbinden. Die Struktur der Interaktion und das faszinierende instrumentale Processing kommen zu grandiosen Ergebnissen, die zu den intensivsten und experimentell besten Audios der letzten Zeit gehören.

“Flow” reviewed by Neural

Un flusso costante nell’esercizio certo non banale modulato da digitali astrazioni che sono relazionate a una voce: effusioni trattenute, scorrere del tempo, circolare del sangue, ondeggiare e derivare dai propri stessi percorsi, traboccare infine. Uno splendido e poetico album questo del portoghese Vitor Joaquim, intimista e inquieto, che molto racconta nelle sue sequenze instabili del […]

Noch das vorherige Tanzvergnügen im Ohr wirkt “Flow” (cronicaelectronica.org/A-Musik) von Victor Joaquim milde ausgedrückt ein wenig langatmig, steif und zu konzeptionell. Ein direkter und intimer Austausch zwischen menschlicher Stimme und Computer soll es sein. Nun gut, hört sich vom konzeptionellen Ansatz her sehr interessant an, ist aber in der praktischen Umsetzung leider nur ein dürftiges […]

Ciò che però in buona sostanza manca alle due opere citate è calore e capacità di emozionare (ed emozionarsi). Qualità che ritroviamo invece nel nuovo album del compositore portoghese Vitor Joaquim. E se, in effetti, Flow è il titolo della traccia video ad opera di Lia, il flusso che attraversa il disco è – come […]

“Flow” reviewed by chaindlk

Cronica is back with a couple of releases, a better exposure and the usual good quality of their outputs just to say that if you haven’t noticed that, Portugal like Spain is an epicentre for what concerns electronic music nowadays. As you can see from their back catalogue Cronica is not one of those label […]
