Press

An overview of reviews, interviews and other appearances in the press.

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."

Two reviews in A Closer Listen

"If you enjoy creative presentations, look no further than the esc.rec. label, whose latest releases are as unique as they come ~ physical editions that speak of permanence and impermanence, while providing reminders of the enduring appeal of touch"

Review Gert Verbeek

"... doen de verwrongen blueslicks van Hans Visser tijdens oprispingen nog het meest denken aan Captain Beefheart."

Review on VPRO 3voor12

ACSH #52 - Coolhaven: "Een soort mesjokke 'Ring des Nibelungen' met Joop Klepzeiker in de hoofdrol"

Review in Neural Magazine

The Void* - Values: "a strong wall of sounds made of modified instruments and electronics but also of elegant layers, cuts and melodic, iterated and dissonant sequences"

Review in Vital Weekly

Radboud Mens - Test Tones: "Maybe a high price for the real thing, but worth every penny in your download price range."
