More Info„Hinter Kinetix steckt seit 1999 der Komponist elektronischer Musik und Klangkünstler Gianluca Becuzzi. Er schreibt: “The artistic production of KINETIX is characterised by a strong experimental imprint, by the interest into the expressive possibilities offered by the digital technologies and by a clear aesthetic inclination towards minimalist forms and micro noises/sounds.” Und tatsächlich klingt die Musik, als würden Kunstwerke der minimal art vertont werden. In den 9 Stücken der CD 1 wird die Beziehung zwischen physischen und akustischen Raumverhalten durch die Aspekte Klangvolumen, Zeit und Häufigkeit klanglich hervorgehoben. Klare digitale Signale von Summen und Sirren, die sich im Wechselbad mit großräumlich hallenden drones befinden, rufen flächige Klänge und dreidimensionale Eindrücke hervor. Auf der zweiten CD sind sehr reduzierte Sounds zu hören, die für eine Klanginstallation entwickelt wurden. Hier ist lediglich der Raum der Interpret. Hochfrequente Geräusche, ein wallendes Brummen und beinernes Knirschen umschmeicheln die Stille.
Since 1999, KINETIX is Gianluca Becuzzi, electronic composer and sound artist active since the first half of the 80’s. He writes: “The artistic production of KINETIX is characterised by a strong experimental imprint, by the interest into the expressive possibilities offered by the digital technologies and by a clear aesthetic inclination towards minimalist forms and micro noises/sounds.” (from the website) Really, the music sounds like a study about a representational work of minimal art. The first CD includes 9 pieces dealing with volume of sound, time and frequencies to underline the relationship between physical space and acoustic space. Clear digital signal-buzz changes with wide open resounding drones evoking superficial sounds and three-dimensionally impressions. The 2. CD shows very reduced sounds conceived for a sound installation. Only the room is the interpreter. High frequencies circle abstract noises, playing with silence.” [Peter Schlewinski for Drone Records]
“...Carefully constructed soundscapes of sine-waves gently moving in and out, with occasional crackles and soft whispering voices, certainly in the first part. It reminded me of some of Jos Smolders' older work in this direction (but much better recorded by Kinetix, but in Smolders' defense, he work with hissy tapes in his early days). In the second and third part Kinetix uses the voice of Alvin Lucier with his well-known ramble about rooms that he is in and you are not, but Kinetix uses it quite nicely. The fourth part is a stretched out drone piece with off and on rumbles and it moves all quite slowly. The previous works by Kinetix were nice, but couldn't convince me that much, but here it surely does. Not so much in terms of presenting something new, but it's a well-thought out disc, excellently produced, good concept and presented well. Thumbs up!” [FdW / Vital Weekly]
