Entdeckung auf ELECTROSHOCK ! Aufregende, ausufernde Elektro-Akustik, mal in sphrische Gebiete driftend, dann wieder hochdynamisch und explosiv ausbrechend...

....Then comes Antanas Jasenka and his "Deusexmachina", a disc of fantastic noise art. The album goes from moments of tensed-up silences and slow-building background noises a la Francisco Lopez to outbursts of finely chiselled harsh noise the likes of Merzbow or Sickness. A lot of action takes place between these two poles, cinematic scenes that pair found sounds with digital treatments to produce captivating sonic environments. In "Accsident" (sic) strings, brushes, and a voice sample are arranged into a post-rock interlude that degenerates in screams, electric guitar, and another build-up of tension. Jasenka has the artistry but most of all the flair to orchestrate an album in such a way that it anticipates the listener's reactions. He is constantly two steps ahead of you. The music of labelmates Artemiy Artemiev, Stanislav Kreitchi, or Anatoly Pereslegin sound highly distinctive because it has developed in a closed-up universe... [Francois Couture / All-Music Guide]
