Comment: EUS is a prolific artist from such a small country as Costa Rica from Mesoamerica. Jose Acuña has issued approximately a dozen of releases during the last 4 years. Reviraje encompasses 7 compositions where long-running mellow drone chords generated by machines are tightly accompanied by dolorous cello chords played by Oliver Barrett. At times the soundscape results in majestic orchestrations or just adding some seeds from electro-acoustic and concrete music to get a more profound and magnetising outcome. In general, the whole is a dainty sway between known and abstract, between visible and occult, between mundane and blissful, between epic and…epic. Furthermore, it could not be described as beautiful because of being way too gloomy and glowering by its nature. Some decades ago such kind of music was just described as deep.
