In the field of the experimental music, the amplifying of mechanical vibrations and microscopic sounds form the basis of the Piezo Technology, this being the conceptual principle that inspires this album. Many of the sounds used in these tracks rescue that conceptual base in terms of the construction of a sound design that accentuates the micro, making them available to melt them into subtle sound layers at the pulse of which modern artisan. ‘Criuk’ move within a intricate microelectronic, where the resources of syncopated rhythms, clicks'n cuts, complex arrangements of melodies, jazzy chords, sweet processed vocalizations, fine white noise and deep bass carve an amalgam that proposes pieces that introduces in a comfortable but unsettling sonorous narrative introspection, in a cloak of aesthetic codes vaporized by a dubby sound, twisted with the rhythmic and throbbing crunch of the clicks'n cuts of the Mille Plateaux era, permeated in a balm of bright and playful harmonies, chords and melodies. ‘Criuk’ go on a trip through surprising landscapes that can be seen as atomized sensations, in a journey of pyrotechnic flashes, where the cruising speed sneakily breaks into oscillating and pointillistic pulses. Kicks and percussions are punctuated with counterpoints, crisscrossing with metallic and granular sounds filtered with pinpoint precision. Its grounds are nocturnal, hopeful, those that unfold with elegance, transporting matter to intense and introspective recesses as well as towards states of pure hedonism. Soporific textures flow that varnish and permeate the spaces, which reverberate with powerful bass frequencies producing a physical sensation. ‘Criuk’ stir up a state of relative gravity, where movements feel seemingly slowed down within a sophistication of tints, pauses and fractures, with eloquent and energetic musical clarity, panned with timelessness and crashed by a crunchy and voluminous sound. ‘Criuk’ is an album whose keys do not always end up being completely deciphered, however in the end it only matters the pleasure of enjoying such exquisitely mature work. For those tuned into Jan Jelinek, SND, Shinichi Atobe or To Rococo Rot.
