Ivan Čkonjević - NUŠ (2011)


9.0

/Chamber music, Ambient, Electro-acoustic, Minimalism, Post-rock, Experimental rock/

Comment: Ivan Čkonjević is a sound manipulator from Subotica, Serbia whose set of 3 lengthy compositions results in a subtle sound processing of minimally evolving, fluttering guitar-based orchestrations which do sound like the murky slices conjured up with the assistance of cello strings. Furthermore, Čkonjević`s oeuvre used to include repetitive elements thereby having a hypnotic impact on the listener. On the other side, his soundscape is barely audible having a relentless drift between the sound, hisses and silence. However, those silentful yet a little tensioned spins and restrained grooves coming out within the ending track EXP Za granicom remind of GY!BE`s aesthetics at Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven (2000, Kranky). A nice listening.
