descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Using turntables, percussion and stringed instruments, Van Bebber and Vorfeld explicate their artistic nosiness through a kind of contractility that places events and forms in an ever-changing resilience of unexpected patterns, where non-usable noise and snippets of pre-recorded expressions are filtered from masses of discarded materials. While magnifying tense elucubrations based on corrugated frequencies and destructive recurrences, the sonic trajectories of "Kreisel" are visible from different angles; what's missing in terms of silence and space is recovered by giving the listener no options, except a thorough acceptance of an uneasy jargon made of sudden delusions and betrayed expectations. Tendentially self-destructive, this music depicts semi-serious revelations about ugliness, which is exploited until its juicy extremism becomes the distillate of something usually unsafe for the ears, but nevertheless important for our search of truth."-Massimo Ricci (Touching Extremes)
