“Hidden Name” reviewed by Jazz e Arredores

O sonho antes de acordar, quando as formas começam a ganhar contornos e a consciência começa a organizar os últimos fiapos de matéria irreal. Em “Hidden Name”, Stephan Mathieu e Janek Schaefer, cúmplices de anteriores apresentações públicas, como os festivais MUTEK/2002 (Canadá) e Musica Genera/2005 (Polónia), tornam perceptível essa passagem de forma plasticamente sedutora, oscilante […]

“Hidden Name” reviewed by Liability Webzine

En terme d’ambient, peu aujourd’hui arrivent à faire évoluer un genre qui semble être rendu à un point de non-retour. Cela n’empêche en rien de voir nombre de disques sortir et qui ont bien souvent cette beauté glaciale et l’imprégnation d’espaces sonores infinis. Stephan Mathieu et Janek Schaefer se sont fait depuis plusieurs années déjà […]

“Hidden Name” reviewed by Cyclic Defrost

Strewn together during a stay at a Manor Farm House in the South of England, Hidden Name invents its own mythic past. Its swooning, woody tones and swathes of haunting, echoing noise wipe away time’s contributions and seek out original memory, a universal stillness, a tantalizing quiver of immobility.
