“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Data.Wave

This is another chapter in our research project of Ran Slavin’s music, where we are listening to The Wayward Regional Transmissions. Artwork of the album is very original, we are looking down to the desert’s surface from a satellite, while receiving a transmission or from the command centre. Every single of Ran’s releases is a […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Sound Proector

Израильский музыкант Ran Slavin и португальский лейбл Crónica подготовили очень изящный по своему музыкальному составу выпуск, получивший название The Wayward Regional Transmissions. Культура среднего востока, представленная музыкальными инструментами стран этой местности, предстает здесь в содружестве с шероховатой glitch обработкой и эффектами. Звучание такого теплого аудио коктейля можно описать как смесь цифровой пост музыки, пережившей все […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by D-Side

Au fil de ses réalisations, le musicien et vidéaste israélien Ran Slavin n’a de cesse d’explorer la situation complexe de sa région d’origine, écartelée entre deux cultures, deux religions, mais aussi entre désert et plages, entre ville et campagne, entre tradition et modernité. Un monde d’oppositions, pas toujours aussi binaire qu’il paraît, dont Slavin rend […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Gaz-Eta

Following his excellent reconstruction of Jewish culture in Cracow and industrial revolution revived in Nowa Huta on “Into The Void”, Ran Slavin continues on his quest in audio-art on his latest release. Moving smack centre into the Middle East region, he brings up ghosts of past and present. Accompanied by a booklet full of detailed […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Octopus

Artiste multimédia, touche-à-tout de la création digitale et de l’ouverture acoustique, l’israélien Ran Slavin s’est entouré de ses compatriotes Ahuva Ozeri, joueuse accomplie de bubultarang, sorte de cithare indienne à trois cordes, et Moshe Eliaha, joueur d’oud, pour définir les contours floutés de cet étrange voyage sonore. A la fois épique et évanescent comme une […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Goddeau

Kort na de Tweede Wereldoorlog suste Europa zijn geweten door een opgejaagd volk eindelijk zijn land terug te geven. Dat land, zo liet een oud en heilig boek weten, behoorde hen toe omdat hun God het hen geschonken had. Dat die grond intussen door iemand anders ingenomen was, was niet meer dan een vervelend euvel […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by The Wire

Sound/video artist Ran Slavin, an Israeli, uses aerial photography of the Middle East as a visual underpinning to The Wayward Regional Transmissions, which follows last year’s Insomniac City CD + DVD release on Mille Plateaux. Apart from the hint offered in the title “Shelters and Peace”, there is very little sense of the political strife […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

Wie abstrakt und digital zermahlen auch immer, Slavin macht hörbar, dass Israel auch ein orientalisches Land ist. Wesentlich für den Eindruck sind Samples der Bulbultarangspielerin Ahuva Ozeri, einer Oud und von ‘arabeskem’ Radiopopgedudel. Ozeri ist etwas besonderes, eine Virtuosin der indischen Brettzither, eine populäre Singer-Songwriterin der Musiqah Mizrahit, von ihrem Debut Hechan Hachayal 1975 bis […]

“The Wayward Regional Transmissions” reviewed by ei magazine

The Wayward Regional Transmissions, though of a fascinating genesis, might be taken as an act of cultural appropriation. Conceived as a function of its unwaning reproduction, another element—Oriental Middle Eastern Music —is exhumed and takes a whirl around the Mobieus strip. There is a certain pleasure in all this promiscuous play, though. And, as it […]
