“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by EtherREAL

Quarz est un projet très particulier dirigé par Alexandr Vatagin que l’on connait pour son travail au sein de Tupolev et Port-Royal. Quarz n’est pas un groupe mais un projet à géométrie variable qui, au fil du temps, a vu passer Nicolas Bernier, Stefan Németh (Radian), Alexander Schubert (Sinebag) et Martin Siewert (Trapist). Du très […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by The Sound Projector

It’s more than likely that the only time I’ve ever come across product from the Portuguese Crónica label was back in 2009 with a peculiar strand of sensual electronica, in the willowy form of Erotikon by The Beautiful Schizophonic, which delivered a reassuringly human touch, instead of the usual clanky, cold metallic feel of a […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by Liability

A l’initiale, Quarz était un projet mené de front par Alexandr Vatagin et Lukas Scholler, deux transfuges de Tupolev. Scholler quitte assez rapidement le projet laissant Vatagin mener seul la barque. Il ne restera pas seul très longtemps puisqu’il sera rejoint par des figures montantes des musiques nouvelles et aventureuses que sont Nicolas Bernier, Martin […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Muzikale duizendpoten, zeldzaam zijn ze niet in de wereld van de experimentele muziek, Ook Alexandr Vatagin houdt er heel wat uiteenlopende projecten op na. Zo speelt hij bij bands als Tupolev en Port-Royal, maar ook als producer wist hij reeds een stevige reputatie op te bouwen. Zijn alter ego Quarz dateert uit 2006, maar ‘Five […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by Chain D.L.K.

Slithering low frequencies, oxidised sounds, dull tumbles, subdued shouts and a general feeling of decay impregnate the first part of this one track album by Quarz, a Wien-based collective project assembled by versatile musician Alexandr Vatagin, member of Tupolev and Port-Royal and label boss of Valeot Records, who involved many musicians of the lively artistic […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

QUARZ ist nicht wirklich eine Band, sondern das Projekt von Alexandr Vatagin, der sich von Fall zu Fall vernetzt mit Nicolas Bernier und Alexander Schubert (electronics & samples), Stefan Némenth (synth) oder Martin Siewert (guitar, electronics, CX3) und speziell für Five Years on Cold Asphalt (Crónica 070~2012) auch mit Bernhard Breuer (drums) und Davin Schweighart […]

“Five Years on Cold Asphalt” reviewed by Nonpop

CRÓNICA ist ein Label aus Porto in Portugal, das sich selbst Media-Label nennt – also nicht nur in musikalischen Dingen aktiv ist, sondern auch visuelle Kunst fördert. Dem Label ist dabei vor allem an der Abbildung der modernen Welt gelegen, anstatt irgendwelchen Reminiszenzen hinterherzujagen. Seit 2003 veröffentlicht man jedenfalls elektronische und experimentelle Musik, die sich […]
