esc.rec.61

Review in Nieuwe Noten

"Diepenmaat leverde met zijn ‘Keizersrande’ project een alleszins interessante set opnames af en input voor een aantal zeer verrassende en gevarieerde composities. Veel meer valt er niet te wensen."

Review in Vital Weekly

While the four CDs have a documentary quality to them, Diepenmaat invited artists to compose new work out of his collected field recordings and made those new pieces available as a download, essentially producing a fifth CD to complement the four physical ones.

Review in A Closer Listen

"Off Track is another unique release for Esc.rec., a label that continues to innovate through imagination.  As a sonic document, a manipulation of the sonic document, and a manipulation of the manipulation, it offers layers of interpretation that mimic the activity of the human mind.  The presentation ~ four discs and a digital file ~ is a generous souvenir as well as a celebration."

Review in Opduvel

"Het gaat hier niet om zomaar een bedacht project of een interessant experiment, maar om verbazingwekkend mooie muziek."

Review in Ambientblog

"By re-arranging and filtering the source material and adding electronics, the new tracks become an alternate reality of electro-acoustic sounds. Changing the original recordings in this way teaches us never to take any environmental sound for granted."
