Some comments so far …
This album is a wake up call for the senses… impossible to pigeonhole or classify.
Winifried Dulisch, AUDIO MAGAZIN, Germany
Irish electro-acoustic music has developed from the academic pursuit of pointy/beardy types into something that lives, breathes and makes sense. These are clever, cogent dispatches from the fringes… See you on the other side?
Tony Clayton-Lea, THE IRISH TIMES
On The Nature Of Electricity & Acoustics: what an album! So much diversity and energy. A veritable smorgasbord.
CD OF THE MONTH
Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland
From the delicate works of Dennehy and Wilson through to the post-punk furore of Figgis’ own Princess Tinymeat, there is presumably something for everyone – a wide-ranging and intelligent overview of outsider electronic music in Ireland.
As an introduction to the work of a diverse group of artists and composers, On The Nature Of Electricity & Acoustics is unparalleled…
Ian Maleney, THE QUIETUS
… it is wildly ambitious, incredible, fantastic … magnificent and illuminating
Stephen McCauley, BBC RADIO ULSTER
Have a listen. I’m glad to be part of it.
