"Simon Whetham is an acute listener, a field recorder, a thinker, a globetrotter, and a mobilizer. However, he is also a sonic cook. Wherever he goes, he picks up sounds and atmospheres as if they were exotic ingredients. And for "What Matters Is That It Matters", he ...

"Dreamy, melancholic, peaceful, or just plain gorgeous? As long as your ears are open, the sound world of Yui Onodera will take you where YOU want to go. From simple means (piano, guitar, computer), Onodera draws complex materials, and then mixes them back into ...

"Slowly but o-so-surely, Emmanuel Mieville is building an impressive body of work, where each new album seems to make the previous one pale in comparison. And the music press would be wise to catch on to him. The man is discreet and unassertive, so is his music, but he ...

CELER - SKY LIMITS (CD)

""Hill towns and empty mountains pass by, but the smoothness of the train blurs the view, and it's easier than ever to fall asleep in the low morning sunlight coming in through the train's windows", writes Will Long, the artist behind the Celer moniker, in his liner ...

"Wollscheid and Schreiner are not what you would call household names of the experimental music scene. Although the former gained serious "street" credit on the Industrial scene in the '80s with his moniker S.B.O.T.H.I. and his collaborations with P16.D4. Wollscheid ...

SAWAKO - NU.IT (CD)

"The "field" of experimental ambient music (if there is such a thing) needs Sawako's delicate, measured, expansive touch. We connoisseurs yearn for it. Sadly, the woman who describes herself as a "sound sculptor" and a "signal alchemist" is so busy - think of her ...

"That's exactly what Rutger Zuydervelt invites us to do: to take a walk through the orchestra. Stay Tuned started as an installation where each speaker plays a continuous loop of a group of instruments playing an A note, as if they were tuning up. Visitors walk freely ...

"The Classics Album promises to become a classic meltpop album. What, don't know what meltpop is? Meltpop is what Wieman and its earlier incarnation Zebra do: complex constructions that can at time sound like pop/dance songs, made entirely out of samples drawn from a ...

"The SYNTHI AKS is a legendary machine. Manufactured by Electronic Music Studios in 1971, this portable modular synthesizer was extremely flexible. Not a keyboard synth like what Moog was doing at the time, this was a generative music machine with a matrix patch panel. ...

"First and foremost, Plateforme is a concept, a restrictive framework Laurent Perrier imposed on himself: to create an electroacoustic piece using solely a set of sound sources provided by a "collaborator." The first three fruits of this vast sonic transmutation project ...

"The thing about France Jobin's music that never fails to impress is that it works on so many levels. Listen to it at the threshold of perception (the way it is mastered) or at very high volume, on headphones or through loudspeakers, and you will hear new sonic ...

GINTAS K - SLOW (CD)

"The woman lying down sensually, dreamily, studiously too, on the cover of Slow is the perfect representation of Gintas K's music: research-based music that can also seduce, music that allows your mind to focus and then wander away, to be attentive to the techniques ...

"Someone is gently knocking on metal; a dog is barking in the distance; far away, an Arabic-sounding voice, maybe a muezzin's, can be heard; insects buzz over a background of human activity. With his microphones, Emmanuel Mieville captures moments of reality in exotic ...
