“Things have been quite for Staalplaat and their Mort Aux Vaches series. It seems as Staalplaat moved to another building in Berlin and things are up and running again. Celebrated with a new release in the Mort Aux Vaches series, an ongoing series of CDs recorded at VPRO radio in Amsterdam, and by now with some fifty or more releases - a small encyclopedia of modern music. And oh: an encyclopedia of CD design. This new one comes with a sort of bathroom curtain plastic cover, that is partly transparent, but also makes a hallucignetic thing. The music is by Andrey Kiritchenko, our man on the laptop (and more!) from the Ukraine. Around when this was recorded I also saw him play a concert and besides a laptop, I believe he used an autoharp and a guitar. The laptop contains the 'usual' crackles, hiss, and processed field recordings, but Kiritchenko plays some rather nice warm ambient glitch music. Half way somewhere Fennesz and microsound, not yet really pop like, and cut in to one long piece, Kiritchenko plays rather moody, atmospheric music. Fortunately not too abstract with his ploinks on the guitars, or his drones from the autoharp. I remember back when attending the concert that Kiritchenko's music is quite nice, but perhaps better enjoyable at home then in a concert space with people standing around and talking (like the one I saw). Now that it is on CD, I can only applaud the fact: yes, it works much better. Another great addition to the series.” (FdW)
