FdW says: “Three more or less different approaches to the world of found tapes, and four times fascinating stuff to hear.”
Andrew O'Keefe says:"There is enough content here to carry through even the most staunch single-language listeners, though. We open on a cockerel, and some mysterious bowls and chimes, and this mystery is a throughrun of the tape. Even the speech itself is fascinating to listen to, shrouded in format-fog. And it never seems to run on very long before music interrupts."
"The sounds are drawn from a wide pool of sources — some immediately recognisable, some mystical, vague and puzzling. Their incorporation feels invariably natural. We are treated to choirs, solo vocalists, the sounds of vehicles, animals, instruments. All combined to suggest a vast world in constant motion."
On the first edition of k a n t o o r you find recordings found by Jeroen Diepenmaat (Netherlands), Wassily Bosch (Russia), Ezio Piermattei (Italy) and Ben Roberts (Spain). Each one of them has written some explanatory words on their foundlings."
