“Untitled #284” reviewed by Musique Machine

“…how can a work, if it is authentic, be described in words? This is the absurdity of all musical analysis.” Pierre Schaeffer, First Journal of Concrete Music, 1948-1949 All music and works of sound that avoid words, or linguistic patterns even, can suffer from reviews such as this. Their qualities, be it beauty, ugliness, the […]

“Untitled #284” reviewed by Ether Real

Suite de la série “Untitled” du productif Francisco López, avec cette fois une virée au Portugal puisque cet album sort chez Crónica. Il y a là une certaine logique dans la mesure où ce travail s’appuie sur des enregistrements de Lisbonne réalisés en 1992, et revisité en 2011 dans le cadre d’une commande du Teatro […]

“Untitled #284” reviewed by Terz

Wir bleiben den soundtrackartigen Reisen. Der spanische Klangkunst-Experimentalist ist für seinem regen Output bekannt. Dieses 43-Minuten-Stück wirkt in seiner postindustriellen Fragilität nahezu gasförmig, man muss den Klãngen und ihren Verzweigungsbewegungen und Neuformungen nahezu wie in einem abgedunkelten Videogame folgen, dann wird mensch durch neue Wendungen und des Gefühl eines Trip belohnt. Das bereits 1992 nur […]

Feldaufnahmen aus 1992, aufgenommen in Lissabon und von López letztes Jahr für das Teatro Municipal Maria Matos massive editiert: 43 Minuten leises Rauschen und digitales Klirren — instant Verunsicherung für den Heimgebrauch. (SB)
