Ping-Reset by Bart Koppe is an installation where 36 internet routers attached to the ceiling are rebooted when functioning, making an attached object to make a sound, creating an orchestrated symphony generated by ping and reset.
CD – Cronica
Shrill and charming sounds, bass and iterated frequencies, hypnotic drones, synthetic vibrations, hinting also to organic dimensions. Similarly to metallic insects’ breaths, in the dark bubbling of weird spaces and settings, this Frans De Ward solo release makes use of old recordings, sifted throughdifferent software programs, with a conceptual cut and paste extremely coherent and elegant. The original track warmth, the electroacoustic influence and the impro approach don’t disappear at all. All these characteristics are still lying over all together within the grooves, with deeper density and processing clarity.
