LARS GRAUGAARD: Venus
4/6 Stars

"Sirenengeheul scheint Graugaards Musik zudem mit einiger Freude am enervierenden Zwischenruf vor jeder Gemütlichkeit bewahren zu wollen. Alles, nur nicht konventionell, dürfte des Komponisten Motto sein."

"It creates a mysterious world unto itself. [...] I find it positively riveting."

Lars Graugaard: Venus
"The power-loss in Venus is aurally fascinating and neatly scored; the geometric patterning of Layers of Earth has a certain delicacy; Three Places underlines Graugaard’s keen ear for instrumental sonority. Book of Throws takes the concept further, including a fully improvised solo piano part played against a notated score that the pianist isn’t to have seen or heard previously. It’s reactive and organic to an extent, but a certain stasis creeps in too; here and elsewhere, those ‘emotions’ can feel contained, missing rawness and spontaneity even in improvisation. Impressive performances from talented New York students and their dedicated professors; but I do wonder how differently I’d have reacted had I not known of the science behind the scores."

LARS GRAUGAARD: VENUS
4/5 Stars

"The four amazing compositions on this CD [...] are not just based on conventional compositional techniques as they are mainly based on new findings in IT research, cognitive and ecological musicology that tend to assign a rather important role to space, single performers and audience in the compositional process within the definition of the so-called absolute music, closer to listener's perception and emotions and more distant from commercial or other functional formulas of music itself."

17/10/2015   A Closer Listen

Lars Graugaard: Venus
"It’s this imperfection, this focus on the scientific reduction of the human, what grants Venus its wings, proving that the avant-garde ventures of old are not quite dead yet, and more importantly, that their suggestions are far from being exhausted. This is new music, to be sure, and the program that lies behind it, full of intricacy, will surely provide many more of quite exciting, revealing musical thoughts."
