“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Rockerilla

Le colonne sonore sono parte fondamentale di un lm e spesso hanno decretato il successo della pellicola. Poi c’è chi scrive colonne sonore per lm immaginari come fa Barry Adamson e c’è chi estrae frammenti di queste musiche, le scompone e intorno crea un’atmosfera destrutturata fatta di una dark ambient dagli echi quasi jazz noir […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Sonic Seducer

Clicks’n’cuts, Glitch – da war doch was. Wem die bittersüßen Melodien auf dem elften Studioalbum von Ran Slavin etwas aus der Zeit gefallen erscheinen, liegt damit nicht ganz verkehrt. Das Material, dass Sklavin hier abliefert, was ursprünglich für eine Veröffentlichung auf Mille Plateaux vorgesehen – die bekanntermaßen vor vielen, vielen Jahren recht abrupt ihre Pforten […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by The New Noise

Quello musicale è solamente un aspetto dell’attività creativa di Ran Slavin, artista multimediale israeliano con base a Tel Aviv. Le sue installazioni sono esattamente come potreste immaginarle ascoltando i suoi dischi: luci al neon e paesaggi distopici. Slavin, in ogni caso, nasce proprio come musicista: voce e chitarra del gruppo post-punk israeliano Shalosh Hait e […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by RifRaf

Un tour du côté de 2010, embranchement vers les tops de l’année. Tout en haut de l’échelle, là où les espoirs de disques indémodables tentent de préfigurer l’avenir. Elle se dessinait aux sons d’une ambient venue d’Israël, mise en abime par RAN SLAVIN, sous le nom bienvenu de ‘The Mediterranean Drift’. Six ans plus loin, […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by RNE3 Atmosfera

Bittersweet Melodies supone su undécimo álbum, un trabajo que se sumerge los atardeceres ambient, el negro Oriente Medio, zonas tranquilas con atmósferas utópicas o ritmos low-fi muy fracturados. Encontramos en este Bittersweet Melodies material inédito disperso por discos duros relacionadas con una publicación con Mille Plateaux hace 12 años, justo antes de su inesperado cierre. […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Aural Aggravation

Given Ran Slavin’s broad artistic pursuits, which span video installation, sound and film, and his far-reaching interests which manifest in the exploration of the tensions between opposites, Bittersweet Melody is something of a summation of his preoccupations. Just as ‘bittersweet’ is one of those words that encapsulates contradiction and juxtaposition, so Slavin’s latest album is […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Blow Up

Slavin combina musica e video e ha un curriculum niente male. Questi sono pezzi rimasti non pubblicati nell’ultima dozzina d’anni. Pur nella varietà di sonorità e riferimenti si avverte una unità di fondo, une stile, forse meno appariscente di quanto sia in sostanza. Notevole il piglio narrativo, quasi un susseguirsi di scorci cinematografici o polaroid. […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Amusio

Der Israeli Ran Slavin ist in erster Instanz Multimedia-Künstler. Und weiterhin Musiker. Im weitesten Sinne. Sein Schaffen ist von arglistiger Täuschung sowie didaktischer Raffinesse gekennzeichnet. Die für ihn charakteristische Trennung von realen und irrealen Räumlichkeiten sowie das prozessuale Verfassen von sichtbar unsichtbar gemachten Zuständen schlägt sich auch auf seinem bereits elften Studioalbum nieder. Bittersweet Memories […]

“Bittersweet Melodies” reviewed by Black Audio

Slavin returns with his 11th studio album, fixated with Crime time ambient poster sunsets and middle-eastern noire; opening up with Saturday’s Dress’, awash with ambient sub-textures and wiry electronic low-fi scratches. The lounge electronica of ‘Category: Murder Entertainers’ sets the scene for the rest of the album. With stop/start loops and a nostalgic veil over […]
