“Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by Vital

The music on this cassette was composed for an audio-visual collaboration Adkins did with painter Andy Fullalove in the Bradford Cathedral in 2016. It was a “response to the newly restored altarpiece by William Morris as well as the priceless stained glass windows in the cathedral by Morris’ company”, and Adkins was inspired by the […]

“Unfurling Streams” reviewed by Ether Real

Depuis qu’on l’a découvert en 2011, Monty Adkins apparaît régulièrement sur ces pages avec un plaisir renouvelé. C’est chez Audiobulb qu’on le découvrait mais son champ de travail est assez large et lui permet d’apparaître sur des labels aussi variés que Signature (le label de Radio France) ou encore empreintes DIGITALes. On a cette fois […]

“Unfurling Streams” reviewed by Chain DLK

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) /its always ourselves we find in the sea”. These well-known lines that close E.E.Cummings’s poem “maggy an milly and molly and may” already inspired many artists with a love for one of the most beautiful nature’s contribution to our planet that the American poet described […]

“Residual Forms” reviewed by Blackaudio

This 20 minute one-track EP is available only on Digital Download (unfortunately for the collectors out there); with Adkins thematically covering the notion of ‘drift’ and a lone figure wandering round a city, locked in their own world. ‘Residual Forms’ is a beautiful release; with captivating drones and harmonies that slide and weave gently together […]

“Unfurling Streams” reviewed by Blow Up

Dopo aver lavorato negli anni novanta nel campo dell’acusmatica e della sperimentazione multimediale, Monty Adkins nella scorsa decade si è avvicinato ad una formula espressiva più intimista, concentrandosi su un’idea di elettronica eterea e minimale.

E. Cummings: “for whatever we lose (like a you or a […]

“Unfurling Streams” reviewed by Liability

On peut toujours s’enorgueillir à dire que la musique acousmatique a surtout trouvé racine en France mais, c’est comme le rock aujourd’hui, elle s’est développée un peu partout et elle n’est plus l’apanage d’un seul pays. Et c’est heureux. C’est en tout cas le signe d’une musique qui continue à vivre mais aussi qu’elle est […]
