“Roha” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Gewoonlijk gaat Andreas Trobollowitsch voor zijn composities uit van eerder opgenomen improvisaties – met instrumenten en voorwerpen – en ‘gevonden geluiden’. Dat deed hij bijvoorbeeld bij eerdere albums (met de duo’s Nörz en Acker Velvet) en dat doet hij ook bij zijn solowerkstuk ‘Roha’. Ditmaal schijnen de voorafgaande improvisaties en gevonden geluiden echter vrij rechtstreeks, […]

“Roha” reviewed by Neural

Roha is the first solo album by Andreas Trobollowitsch, ex member of the duo Nörz and Acker Velvet, a musician and Vienna-based composer, performer and sound artist that, in collaboration with David Schweighart, composed the soundtrack for the 1920’s cinema series Digi Wave for the Filmarchiv, Austria. Compared with its past works the free form […]

“Roha” reviewed by The Sound Projector

We’ve heard from Andreas Trobollowitsch some time ago in 2009 as one half of Nörz with Johannes Tröndle; their record for Schraum struck me as “disconnected electro-acoustic sounds…thrown into a cardboard box which is gently rattled about”. Trobollowitsch continues his explorations into electro-acoustic composition solo now, with Roha (CRÓNICA 105-2016). On these eight pieces, the […]

“Roha” reviewed by Silence and Sound

Membre des duos Nörz et Acker Velvet, Andreas Trobollowitsch emprunte aux objets leurs sonorités intrinsèques, pour créer des champs magnétiques aux tourneries cataclysmiques, explosant les notion d’outil et d’instrument. Sur ROHA l’électro-acoustique sème le trouble, empruntant au quotidien ses sources soniques pour se voir transformer en drones persistants et insistants, percutant nos oreilles à coups […]

“Roha” reviewed by Musique Machine

Andreas Trobollowitsch is an avant garde composer previously heard in the band Acker Velvet, whose debut was released in 2012. “Roha” is his only solo full length, as far as I can ascertain. The album is a concise 35 minutes, with 8 different pieces within its running time. My initial impression of the album is […]

“Roha” reviewed by Kindamuzik

Wat het is, is het. Weinig meer moet dat zijn voor Andreas Trobollowitsch. Zijn gevonden geluiden worden nauwelijks door de mangel gehaald. Hij componeert en improviseert ze tot narratieven waarin een organische verteltrant afgewisseld wordt met druk hak-op-de-tak-gekakel van een warhoofd. ROHA richt de oren echter vooral naar het grote talent van Trobollowitsch om het […]

“Roha” reviewed by Black Audio

The field of electroacoustic music has its fair share of garbage, as it does those that are truly inspirational; Andreas Trobollowitsch sits pointing towards the former, just left of the middle ground. Processing acoustic instrumentation with electronics is an art in itself, if the producer is to create anything of actual value; and when Andreas […]

“Roha” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

Andreas Trobollowitsch konnte einem schon zu Ohren kommen zusammen mit Johannes Trödel als Nörz und deren “(Also Known As) Acker Velvet” (Schramm, 2009) und als Acker Velvet mit “Carbon & Chairs” (Monotype, 2012). In erstem Fall wurde als sein Instrumentarium Tape, Electric Guitar, Electric Bass, Melodica [Prepared] uns Electronics [Inside Radio, Feedback] gennant. Das ist […]

“Roha” reviewed by Rif Raf

Il manipule des sources. Souvent uniques, qu’elles aient pour nom contrebasse ou percussions. On le sent, son ‘Roha’ (Crónica), première sous son vrai nom d’ANDREAS TROBOLLOWITSCH, défie les lois du temps et de la musique. Nulle caresse auditive à l’avant-plan, où la recherche des locutions grinçantes occupe l’essentiel de l’espace. Les tripes en prennent pour […]

“Roha” reviewed by Le son du grisli

Je dois avouer que le « basé à Vienne » Andreas Trobollowitsch (la moitié d’Acker Velvet, que je ne connaissais pas, & de Nörz que j’avais déjà entendu) m’a fait asseoir et m’a inspiré du respect dès le premier titre de son (pas long) Roha (pourtant, c’était comme un drone sourd, rien que ça, qui […]
