Via zijn liefde voor jazz belandde hij bij pure improvisatiemuziek en abstracte geluidskunsten, een reis die zijn voorlopig eindpunt kent in ‘Praxis’, zijn eerste plaat op Crónica.

“Praxis” reviewed by Comunicazione Interna

Per il turco Cem Güney un passato come dj e trombettista e un presente come sound-artist dedito a collages elettro-acustici. I due padiglioni auricolari sulla copertina di “Praxis”, trafitti da rametti appuntiti e foglie di un verde cupo, illustrano gli stimoli uditivi indotti da queste nove composizioni, persino scontrose ad un primo approccio, ma in […]

A explanação das relações ocupa toda a porção do press-release, que acompanha o disco lançado há algum tempo pela Crónica (que aposta frequentemente em aventureiros […]

In the press release the Turkish composer tries to focus our attention on the meditative qualities of certain kinds of sound by […]

“Praxis” reviewed by Neural (english edition)

With sudden audio constructions, electro-acoustic and microsound influences, the Turkish multi-instrumentalist Cem Güney (who can boast past experiences as DJ and trumpet player) gives birth to a fascinating sequence of synthetic sounds and field recordings for the Portuguese experimental label Crónica.
