"Rafal Iwanski is the man behind X-Navi:et, but also the man behind Hati and to his personal use he has analog filter machines, analog synthesizer, digital drummer, electronic effects, sampling unit field recordings, acoustic objects and microphones. All of the pieces were recorded over a period of three years before it was finally edited to this release. Like Rale (see elsewhere) this is at that same cross road of noise, improvisation, musique concrete, drone and such more, but throughout it doesn't seem to match Rale (or various others). X-Navi:et's music is a bit more noisier, a bit more single minded and a bit less worked out. X-Navi:et goes for the bigger picture, in single colors and lacks the refinement of others in this field. However I thought this was quite a nice one too, as it moves around, shifts that particular field of music upwards and towards the area of noise perhaps and makes a release that I do quite like for what it is: a sturdy, monolithic work of mild noise."
