“Positions” reviewed by Vital Weekly

The press release for this is very lengthy, even when it doubles with information to be found on the cover of the CD. There is also some information on the composer, but it leaves out what I know him best for. I am sure for him that’s ancient (or perhaps irrelevant) history, but maybe it […]

“Positions” reviewed by RifRaf

Trois trombones, trois contrebasses ou absence de musiciens, l’art du Néerlandais MARTIJN TELLINGA explore les possibles et l’au-delà sonore sur ‘Positions’ (Crónica). Ardue et enthousiaste, l’expérience acoustique inscrit pourtant sa première écoute dans une âpreté repoussante, elle s’estompe dès la seconde entame pour ne plus lâcher.

“Positions” reviewed by whisperinandhollerin

‘Positions’ finds Tellinga exploring space. Not outer space, but physical space, and the relationships between sounds when created within certain spaces.

The way sounds resonate, reverberate or otherwise […]

Their tones are noble […]

New release: Martijn Tellinga’s “Positions”

You could light a space with fire. It would burn for as long as there was flammable material and oxygen. It would leave ash for you to clean up (sweeping the floor with a large broom). It would provide heat. It would smell bad – and perhaps set off fire alarms. But for a while […]
