descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This disc is by label boss Goh Lee Kwang and Julien Ottavi. The first plays 'no input mixer' and the latter TamTam, bass drum and a computer running Puredata and Apodio 10. As you can imagine this brings improvisation to another, more electronic level. Not unlike Stockhausen's 'Mikrophonie I', the TamTam and bass drum might be to not just sound but also trigger events that occur on the computer. The more high-end feedback like sounds of Goh Lee Kwang's no-input mixer work quite well with the computer processed versions of the very low-end sound the two acoustic instruments produce. All of this not sounding at all like something Stockhausen would have produced; obviously.

I believe the six pieces on this release have been recorded in various concerts and maybe received some final treatment later on. These six pieces last about seventy minutes and that is perhaps quite long to go through in one round of listening, even when the pieces have a fine variation to them. When things are less squeaky and noise and the emphasis goes towards playing the TamTam/bass drum triggered by the sounds coming in from elsewhere, I very much enjoy this, such as in 'Out Of Berapa', which is the most drone-like affair of the disc. These act as warning signals from afar and has a great subdued quality to it. Also 'Pukul 3' has a delicate vibrancy about it. I am less fond of the more noisy pieces, such as the short 'Extra', which may be a bit superfluous. This would have been certainly something to see in concert!"-Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly

"Julien Ottavi: Composer, Artist, curator and PhD student on new music and network

A mediactivist, artist-researcher, composer / musician, poet and tongues destroyer, experimental film maker and anarchitect, founder and member of Apo33, Julien Ottavi is involved in research and creative work, combining sound art, real-time video, new technologies and body performances. Since 1997, he develops a composition work using voice and its transformation through computer. Active developer of audio/visual programs with Puredata, he has also developed since many years DIY electronics (radio transmitters, oscillators, mixers, amplifiers, video transmitters...etc) in the perspective of knowledge sharing on technological development. Main developer for the Gnu/Linux operating system APODIO for digital art and A/V & streaming diffusion. His practices is not limited to the art spheres but crosses different fields from technological development to philosophy / theoretical research, biomimetic analysis & experimentation. Since many years he reflects on the relations between experimental practices and collective practices within the creation of autonomous collective groups, putting in question the authorship strategy of the "art ideology".

Julien Ottavi is part of a generation of audio artists to emerge in the 90's that indicated some of the directions that music and soundart is taking. While at art school, he organized a series of concerts, bringing international artists from the experimental scene to Nantes, drawing touring musicians to movements happening outside of Paris. This became not just a destination but a nexus for collaborations. This resulted for example in the group Formanex to perform graphical scores of electro-acoustic music, and in Apo33, an artists collective to facilitate, nurture, and disseminate creative audio practice. In this way, Julien represents the energy and initiative of a present day artist - activist through practice, organizing as performance, publishing as networking, open source and open aesthetic. This fluidity of working across boundaries of style and role are seen in his music, physical with computer, performative and reflective. (introduction by Atau Tanaka)"
