8/10 Mingus Staff review, 27 March 2008
April #02 straddles the divide between contemporary classical-using pianos and string sounds- and electronica, which indicates a use of digital signal processes to edit, programme and arrange an array of synthesized sounds. There's a tremendously acute attention to the detail of the sounds used and the way they're placed throughout the field of play. I say play, as there's a sense of experimentation that goes with the adoption of quick fire edits, splices and the placement of voice, sound and texture. On track three 'Airdrop', the sound sources chop and change without losing a sense of the flow being created. It's almost soundtrack-y and it calls to mind the work of Basinski in the more minimal piano led moments or Takagi Masakatsu's brilliant Pia in places. It goes without saying that if you like the sound of keenly processed traditional instruments and jump-cut pre-set electronics, then you'll no doubt like this. (yeah, I know, I do tend to end my reviews on this page like this but it's my method!)
