    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

    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

    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 experience François Couture All Music Guide reviews June 2006 FURT s music has never been for the 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 like listening to fast forwarded acousmatic music Exhausting but highly rewarding and unique Tom Service The Guardian reviews 10 February 2005 one of the most blisteringly energetic and experimental partnerships over the past 20 years Martin Longley BBC Music reviews February 2005 FURT admire density Their samplers behave like busy hives communally sucking in chewing swallowing then regurgitating in 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 loses its vital lust for visceral thrills FURT s only fear is the silence used so sparingly on this disc Dan Warburton Paris Transatlantic reviews February 2005 Malfatti would hate FURT s music describing it no doubt as gabby which would 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 beeps screeches rumbles growls thuds squeaks groans gurgles pips thwacks plunks whacks buzzes and toots mighty impressive stuff Massimo Ricci Touching Extremes reviews January 2005 mice and sad fantasy are two relativistic journeys through extreme unease and syntactical dismemberment Miraculously variegated and brain stimulating FURT s music doesn t follow any protocol instead it jumps right out of its corner with bunches of ubiquitous incidents leading to labyrinths of incognoscibility and displacement dead or alive is a magnifying glass over a whole world of undefined microanxieties James Harley Computer Music Journal 28 1 reviews Spring 2004 The variety of material and the variation of mood texture dynamics density and allusion all speak to FURT s mastery of the

    that has the formal rightness of a late Beethoven quartet in every respect a great piece of music smallfish reviews April 2003 The duo of Richard Barrett and Paul Obermayer are FURT and this four track CD of recordings made between 1997 and 2000 is extremely heavy going at times Dark sound manipulation collage samples and extreme electronics create a disturbing and heady sound Snatches of dialogue from The Great Dictator only add to the immense sense of menace Chris Blackford Rubberneck reviews 2003 Their angel is an ambitious work like a digital updating of classic 60s electroacoustic composition the care taken over the acoustics the gradual blurring of electronic and acoustic and the dreamlike way in which motifs drift and re emerge in unexpected configurations right up to the ambivalent and disturbing coda FURT s anti minimalist approach is paradoxically refreshing these days and their delight in the sensuous possibilities of electronic sound is infectious Evan Parker reviews 2002 FURT is the outstanding electro acoustic group at the leading edge of this music The level of understanding that exists between the two in performance produces sensational music CODA magazine reviews 2002 I was fascinated harsh collages of sped up samples a fine spray of sonic shrapnel which they delivered to their own mysterious internal rhythm Philip Clark The Wire reviews 2001 the bleak industrial electronic sounds Nono explored have rubbed off on Barrett and Obermayer angel oozes with similar surface ugliness and an ingrained exultant pessimism the constant changes of direction heard here build considerable impact and have gruesome dramatic power Ben Watson reviews 2000 FURT are special Cavernous echo and abrupt pips scrunches and blurts suggest malfunctioning equipment in a decaying warehouse gestures and responses are measured by the playing body rather than bar line or stop clock
