Barco, Sergio Cote: Pink Noise(s) In Prime Numbers (Edition Wandelweiser Records)

"An invitation into our perceptual periphery, where noise(s) — and perhaps we — can be somewhat disobedient" read the liner notes to Colombian composer Sergio Cote Barco's sound work, three compositions from extreme minimalism and silence to rich sound, each varying the topography and envelopes of sound, ostensibly performed by "electronic music".

"You are invited to play this album using loudspeakers, choosing a comfortable and constant volume level.

Pink Noise(s) In Prime Numbers is an invitation into our perceptual periphery, where noise(s) — and perhaps we — can be somewhat disobedient."-Liner notes

"[...] With 'Pink Noise (s) in Prime Numbers', Cote Barco puts the listener to the test. What we hear is noise, first very softly then at a somewhat higher volume and no more than that, the type of album that many people will wonder whether this still falls under music. And yet, there is a lot to enjoy. For example, I associate part one with a constantly flowing brook, on the banks of which you can sit and muse, and part two with gusts of wind and downpours, separated by long silences. There is no progression, just a change in the volume. The first part takes half an hour, the second more than forty minutes and the third five. So we are almost an hour and a half on the road with noise, so only suitable for the go-getters among us. But do you belong to that group and can you surrender to it,then there is a great rest.
