FIRST IMPRESSIONS ABOUT “LYNX”
Some words from: Toneshift.net!
“Another interesting duo with a record of note is the electroacoustics possibilities explored by Joanna John & Burkhard Stangl entitled Lynx (Interstellar). As they mesh old/new technologies to form an encrusted drone the air around you may become tinted with the strange and familiar. Guitar strings, rain, intermittent percussion are seriously infused here, steeped into a sort of sonic folk music. They have a rustic flair with cosmic glitter tossed sparingly into the mix, making for the soundtrack to nature at a turning point in history. It’s a glassy world we are looking into, one that is defying the odds to keep certain traditions alive, and for all its warmth there is something unsettling just below the surface.”
Something in German as well with the company of Erik Satie and Morton Feldman!
Fragment of the translation: “One might think that the animal (from the cover) listened to the dreamy form of avant-garde that the Austrian guitarist developed with the Polish A/V artist here. Delicate (half) acoustic guitar figures swing over an electronic primer of soft noise or individual piano stops, here and there, feedback flashes and fades away – all with the greatest possible calm and yet full of “suspense”.
