    risk becoming lost without a direction to lead you through the dense unfolding textures It s a similar dilemma to that faced by us all in Western societies today The twenty first century is an age of greater complexity than ever before a technological world a world in which information comes at us from every quarter only fragments of which can be taken in Obliquely FURT s music seems to try and formulate an answer to the question of how art should respond to these challenges these changing conditions This is perhaps dealt with even more explicitly on equals than on spin networks and as such it s more forbidding but perhaps even more thought provoking I mean it when I say that this is some of the very best music being created today François Couture Monsieur Délire reviews October 2009 FURT the unsung heroes of modern experimental electronic music unparalled sampling artists dizzying maximalists calling in a plethora of unrelated sounds that are arranged into a relentless stunning aural kaleidoscope whose internal logic becomes palpable only once you achieve a certain state of hypnosis FURT are redefining virtuosity for the digital age intense unpredictable and simply crazy Brilliant Dave Madden The Squid s Ear reviews December 2009 Valuing dexterity and amazement over pitch and harmony electronics pioneers Richard Barrett and Paul Obermayer sprint through a cache of blips mangled voices imploded acoustics and sampled re sampled anomalies with immortal speed These virtuosic mages are unparalleled in their collective ability to stitch tear down rip defragment poke and circumvent your expectations A complicated mix of fascination cleverness humor a seamless personality a deft juggling act sense reaches a peak John Eyles allaboutjazz reviews January 2010 The overall effect is like watching a rotating kaleidoscope there is too much to assimilate and no second chances Ultimately immersion surrender and enjoyment are the only realistic options Tim Owen thejazzman reviews January 2010 FURT s electronics are simultaneously playful in an almost childlike sense and mind fuckingly cerebral suddenly we are traversing a disconcerting soundscape a sonic mindfield of minor sound glitch events and fractured voice samples You must listen for yourselves Glenn Astarita jazzreview reviews February 2010 the duo generates a vivid and somewhat existential trek into boundless regions of sound the program is fortified with crystalline audio where these sound shaping endeavors shine forth with prismatic hues and transverse angles semi structured and improvised elements amid microtonal blips quirky treatments and witty configurations digitally manipulated voices jangling percussion simulations and sizzling electronics forays that interweave and dissect the duo executes a confederation of bizarre contrasts oscillating and liquefying sound sculpting manoeuvres to complement notions of a social breakdown daunting vistas with ethereal jaunts into a cosmic void Indeed it s electronic music underscored with a sense of purpose Ken Waxman MusicWorks 107 reviews July 2010 No threnody in the regular sense curtains instead sprawls across the soundfield as thin strident timbre are overlaid with low mewling pulses as angular sonic palindromes

    us of the nature of sound as human even though it s all electronically manipulated the human element is still central albeit in a highly dramatised uncontextualised way this reinvents music as it proceeds so much that when you hear normal piano notes or saxophone notes it s almost shocking that there are such things fORCH completely turn musical language on its head a valuable experience which has taught you

  • Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes | furtlogic
    part acousmatic wonder by the duo of Richard Barrett and Paul Obermayer who have created a composite of two live performances to give birth to this beguiling million headed monster The unbelievably quick yet totally intelligible hypermutation of the sources gives the music a head spinning quality an alternative conception of music that probably belongs to those not afraid to radically change their listening perspectives when necessary Although there is

    FURT s music keeps on getting better Two years after their first release on Evan Parker s Psi label and their fourth album overall comes OMNIVM a truly stunning performance The relation between FURT and Xenakis is easy to establish the master s electronic music featured the same kind of frenzy and brutality they race onward jerk around and assault you with heaps of sound It remains an exhausting listening

    faint hearted This shapeshifting assemblage creates its own inner logic presenting very few reference points with the other laptop projects populating the experimental faction of electronica Usually when such a point of saturation is reached artists opt for harsh noise systematical deconstruction or glitchy textures With FURT speed and density never devolve into such options Barrett and Obermayer are able to sustain the pace ideas flying so quickly it feels

    a persistent shower of sound Much of the matter is generated by old fashioned acoustic instruments granulated into a fresh existence Wood metal plastic These might be the materials Or not FURT s fast attack is maintained throughout dynamic in the extreme They are terminally hyperactive Barrett and Obermayer sustain an intense atmosphere of busy resourcefulness filling their long developments with an impressively contrasting range of sound Their experimentation never

    be the understatement of the year this stuff is so action packed it s curiously slow moving at times the sheer variety of material sampled and mangled a veritable treasure trove of stock new music sounds including hysterical Berberianesque sopranos rough farty trombones shades of Paul Rutherford springy and splattery Barry Guy like double bass and all manner of swoops glitches crunches splats rasps boings crackles wheezes scratches plonks bumps
