“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Blow Up

“de-tour” sta evidentemente per deutsch tour, da lì, ovvero da una serie di concerti in varie città tedesche (più tappa nella natia Lisbona) tenuti un paio d’anni fa, arrivano i materiali di partenza dell’album dei portoghesi @c (Miguel Carvalhais e Pedro Tudela) e Vitor Joaquim. Ma l’intestazione del disco sottende con ogni probabilità anche l’operazione […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Vital Weekly

As far as I remember this is the first major work by Jorge Mantas, who has published works on CDR before as well as being part of a previous release on Cronica Electronica. Among his influences he ranks rather writers (such as Proust, Poe, Dante), painters (Friedrich, Waterhouse), nouvelle vague cinema and erotic photography. I […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Distorsom

Autor de um punhado de registos em formato CDR, em nome próprio ou partilhados com outros músicos, Jorge Mantas tem em Musicamorosa o seu verdadeiro álbum de estreia, um trabalho desenvolvido desde 2003 e influenciado por outras artes como a fotografia, o cinema, a pintura e a literatura – os títulos dos temas foram retirados […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Comunicazione Interna

Le note di copertina indicano che quasi tutti i titoli di “Musicamorosa” sono frasi tratte dal romanzo “La prisonnière” del ciclo proustiano “À la recherche du temps perdu” e il sound-designer Jorge Mantas in arte The Beautiful Schozophonic ci tiene a sottolineare le affinità tra la figura di Marcel Proust, rintanato a scrivere tra le […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Jazz e Arredores

O trabalho do artista sonoro Jorge Mantas, aka The Beautiful Schizophonic, foi acrescentado de um novo capítulo, intitulado Musicamorosa. Mantas mergulha agora na procura do denominador comum entre as emoções próprias do romantismo de Marcel Proust, de À la Recherche du Temps Perdu, dos aspectos relacionados com o amor romântico, sofrido e melancólico, e a […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Smallfish

A contender for one of the finest releases on Cronica in my opinion. This CD is a beautiful, relaxed and very, very deep piece of work. The track titles are all taken from the work of Marcel Proust and could, conceivably, come across as a little highbrow, yet the music speaks for itself here at […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by D-Side

Musique morose. Voilà bien un qualificatif qui ne s’applique pas à la musique du portugais Jorge Mantas qui, sous l’identité de The BEautiful Schizophonic produit une musique ambiante et intelligente, dont l’influence majeure se trouve non pas dans la musique, mais dans la littérature, les classiques de Poe et Dante ayant plus de sens pour […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by earlabs

The first wave of slowly swelling melancholic loop-drone upon starting the disc confirms any preconception one might have concerning the tone of this latest release by The Beautiful Schizophonic (Jorge Mantas). The second wave of likewise loop-droning undulating decay (track 2) consecutively goes on to undermine these first impressions, and thereby confirms the preconception concerning […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Suburban-Lab

Un romántica sonata de drones y electrónica, en uno de los mejores discos editados hasta el momento por el sello portugués Crónica (que por fin está disponible en Suburban-lab). Un trabajo de frágil belleza y profundamente trabajado, en el su autor, Jorge Mantaas, se ha inspirado en la obra de Marcel Proust (algunas de cuyas […]

“Musicamorosa” reviewed by Terz

Noch eine Art Hörspiel, jedoch voluminöser, wattiger und wolkiger: das Projekt von Jorge Mantas steigt bevorzugt in vergangene Kunstwelten ein, um Verbindendes herauszuschöpfen, gleich ob Poe, Dante oder C. D. Friedrich. Diesmal ist es Marcel Proust geworden, dessen ’Recherche’ in den letzten Jahren eine Hauptinspiration für Mantas war. Die Idee, dass Liebe nur in Trauer […]
