Comment: without any doubt the previous year was being very fertile to Lorenzo Gòmez Oviedo while he had released 4 issues, a couple of them were released on the French imprint Nowaki Music. One of them, Pasajes consists of the long-running progression which is imbued with remarkably varied sounds, provoking intentions, arousing intensities and ear-catching phase-related changes. However, the aforementioned gadgetry is adeptly and wittily set up and thereby ultimately creating a dynamic pointed whole throughout the course of a 25-minute. Incisive droning noises in the beginning part are followed by a sublime rhythmic section and cathedral-alike chanting which in turn are followed by new mind-provoking ones including peppering with field recording drenched elements. The kind of electronic music presented by Oviedo is something special because of embracing wider borders to narrate an interesting, seemingly more loose story to all of us. Indeed, literally it involves some spoken phrases though it seems to be a shrewd measure but not the goal on its own. Maybe I am wrong to guess there is up somewhere the ultimate culmination to be reached. In fact, it consists of various flood tides therefore providing a chance to sustain the excitement and pleasure throughout. Is it the hedonistic one? Yes, in a way but first of all, it is the cerebral challenge with some bits for our soul and slightly a bit for the body. It pours out an immense amount of information yet the information is channelized in an appealing way. Top tier.
