“Ification” reviewed by Temporary Fault

One for the dissolution and/or enhancement of the intellect, featuring a couple of somewhat involving episodes and a number of scarcely significant ingredients as far as artistic validity is concerned. Pure works with samples, which he transforms and extends endlessly, at times even beyond the limit of what’s aurally tolerable. When the guidelines of telluric […]

“Ification” reviewed by The Sound Projector

On Ification Pure works with samples gathered from real musicians including the guitarist Christoph de Babalon, the drummer Martin Brandlmayr, and bassist Anke Eckardt; plus the memorable screams of Alexandra von Bolzn. Said samples are captured into Pure’s hard drive where he can perform his experimental transformations. His strategies vary, from making a simple loop […]

“Ification” reviewed by Kwadratuur

Peter Votava (aka Pure) is een Oostenrijkse, in Berlijn residerende oude rot in de elektronische muziek. Hoewel hij begin jaren ’90 zijn sporen verdiende in de opkomende hardcore- en technoscene en later heel wat succes oogstte als de helft van het raveduo Ilsa Gold, houdt Votava zich de laatste tien jaar vooral bezig met minder […]

“Ification” reviewed by Etherreal

Pure est le projet musical de Peter Votava, artiste autrichien que l’on suit depuis quelques années maintenant et dont Ification est le quatrième album après des collaborations avec Martin Siewert et Dieb13 notamment. Si l’on est moins adepte du hardcore noisy de ses premières heures, on est particulièrement fan de ses expérimentations ambient-noise qu’il mène […]

“Ification” reviewed by Comunicazione Interna

La sonica “Fire” – un sample di chitarra compattato in scarica digi-punk – apre questo disco dell’austriaco (residente a Berlino) Peter Votava violentando i timpani dell’ascoltatore, ma già “After the bomb” smaterializza tale potenza fisica in tensione tutta mentale, con le percussioni del batterista dei Radian Martin Brandlmayr chiamate a solcare un fondale ambient come […]

“Ification” reviewed by Goddeau

Zuiverheid is een betrachting van velen en de oorzaak van onnoembaar en talloos leed in deze wereld. In een ijdele poging de wereld te redden en te zuiveren van al wat onrein is, heeft menig ideoloog diezelfde wereld in een stinkende hel getrokken. De weg erheen is immers geplaveid met goede voornemens. Onder het pseudoniem […]

“Ification” reviewed by Textura

Pure’s Ification is an oft-unsettling stylistic travelogue whose range extends far beyond the backyard. Uncompromising experimental electronic workouts sit side-by-side with modern classical and cinematic soundscaping in the Berlin-based artist’s collection. Since 1992, Peter Votava has issued more than thirty CDs and vinyl releases of solo and collaborative works under different aliases, with Ification arriving […]

“Ification” reviewed by STNT

Ification est le plus récent des travaux de Peter Votava / Pure (actif, précisons-le, depuis presque vingt ans et qui a réalisé des albums sur des labels aussi prestigieux que Mego et Staalplaat (et pour mon plaisir, un split avec Ultra Milkmaids)). Globalement, cet album apparaît comme moins aquatique que Noonbugs, sorti sur Mego, plus […]

“Ification” reviewed by Liability Webzine

Il n’est pas toujours facile de suivre un type comme Peter Votava. Complètement imprévisible on ne sait jamais trop à quoi s’attendre avec lui. Avec Ification, dont le jeu de mot avec Pure n’aura échappé à personne, on aura par conséquent affaire à un album aux multiples visages. Ce n’était nullement obligatoire de sa part […]
