---------- press quotes ----------

« Vermeer Kankare y su celestial ambiente casi cercano a una surrealista Caja de Música ralentizada ponen los vellos de punta, mientras que otros como Hormigón se mueven por ambientes mucho más sobrios y casi "industriales" y cinematográficos. Cierra el algo más jazzístico La Taaban Karo . En definitiva, si eres amante de este tipo de proyectos y sonoridades esto es lo tuyo. » Coronel Mortimer LA MUERTE TENÍA UN BLOG

“Hession a drummer of some considerable repute on the free music scene … an arresting collaboration … dark and sculpted.” Verity Sharp LATE JUNCTION, BBC RADIO 3

« Une musique électronique – électroacoustique avec percussions d’une grande richesse sonore et timbrale et avec une intense complexité rythmique / pulsatoire. Nombre d’artistes électroniques qui s’aventurent dans la libre improvisation arrivent trop souvent à me lasser au bout d’un moment. Les qualités de ces deux artistes, elles, relancent mon attention. Leurs trouvailles soniques, la combinatoire de leurs sons individuels, les nuances infinies, leurs états d’âme, tout concourt à rendre leurs processus et leur musiques vraiment intéressants, subtils. On peut s’y repaître, écouter intensément ou flâner de plage en plage, on sera surpris par des tressautements, des sonorités complexes, des attaques improbables du son, des contrepoints futuristes, des échappements fluides dans la 3D. On retrouve cet empathie/ symbiose qui caractérise la musique du duo Furt (Richard Barrett et Paul Obermayer). C’est donc un compliment ! Cet enregistrement produit modestement par B’s F pourrait bien figurer comme point fort sur la Carte du Tendre de la musique électronique qui échappe à l’écoute chiante du tout venant ‘electronica’. » Jean Michel van Schouwburg ORYNX
