“Geography” reviewed by HIS Voice

Do katalogu portugalského labelu Crónica přibylo po deseti letech nové dílo Vitora Joaquima, laptopisty, výtvarníka a online aktivisty, od osmdesátých let jednoho z nejvýraznějších představitelů portugalské elektronické scény. Nové CD nese název Geography a je inspirováno myšlenkami amerického vědce, fyziologa a geografa Jareda Diamonda, zejména jeho dílem Osudy lidských společností (Guns, Germs, and Steel: The […]

“Geography” reviewed by The Sound Projector

Vitor Joaquim, Porto’s celebrated laptop geomancer, tries to nail it all down with Geography, which sounds like a statement of intent. The opening title track confirms his intentions, as it arrives with sampled speech from some sort of space mission documentary. It’s as if Joaquim is pulling back to show us the planet in its […]

“Geography” reviewed by Indie Rock Mag

L’album devait sortir courant 2012 chez Kvitnu, il aura finalement fallu quatre ans de plus au Portugais et un retour dans le giron du label Crónica qui publiait 10 ans auparavant son merveilleux Flow pour accoucher de cette ode au déterminisme géographique de nos sociétés et de notre espèce, inspirée par le livre “De l’inégalité […]

“Geography” reviewed by Jazz.pt

Vítor Joaquim é um de variadíssimos casos na cena portuguesa de músicos para quem a improvisação é um processo fundamental, mas que nem por isso consideram tocar aquilo a que vamos chamando “música improvisada”. O facto de o seu instrumento ser o computador, e de este definir à partida o tipo de música que pratica […]

“Geography” reviewed by Déphasage

Si Vitor Joaquim a un mérite c’est bien celui de conceptualiser ses projets en amont et de les mettre en perspective les uns avec les autres. Après l’élégant “Flow” qui traitait de l’intimité de l’homme et de sa relation avec la machine, puis “Filament” qui questionnait rien de moins que l’infinité de l’espace-temps, voici donc […]

“Geography” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

VITOR JOAQUIM Geography (Crónica 117~2016): Waren “Flow” (2006) und “Filament” (2011) vom Blick auf die eigene Gefühlswelt bestimmt und einer egozentrischen Verfasstheit von Raum und Zeit und damit von der quasi vertikalen Verortung im Großen und Ganzen, ist Joaquims Perspektive nun horizontaler. Sein Bemühen, die Lage zu erkennen – Brenns großes Motto – ist spezifisch […]

“Geography” reviewed by Rockerilla

Continua la sequenza di interessanti pubblicazioni della lusitana Cronica che per l’occasione propone il nuovo lavoro di Vitor Joaquim, ispiratissimo artista portoghese che compone anche per documentari, video installazioni e altro ancora. Quando poi dal vivo non è supportato da immagini, Joaquim ama esibirsi completamente al buio proprio perché vuole stimolare la fantasia e i […]
