Axel Borup-Jørgensen: Carambolage
"Axel Borup-Jorgensen’s compositions use small ensemble and voice. Winterelegie whispers and searches for its voice, both human and instrumental. Sound events are punctuated and often stand alone, but amidst the fragmentation is a thread of continuity. The distinct plots on the figurative graph form a direct line of intention. Carambolage is for percussion, electric guitar, and piano. The spaces here are more pronounced and the direct path more obscured. The listener can hear the painstaking detail that must populate the score with each exact-sounding block. The interactions between performers build singular moments rather than pyramids of tension. ‘Pocket Oratorium’ deconstructs a dark Rainer Maria Rilke poem and stretches each phoneme and syllable. Only 24 words are spoken, with no repeats, but it takes nearly 10 minutes for the broken utterances and accompanying piano, harpsichord, and percussion bursts."

Axel Borup-Jørgensen: Carambolage
4/6 Stars

"Et fremragende stykke lydkunst, spillet og sunget knivskarpt... Axel Borup-Jørgensens håndskrevne partiturer ligner noget, der ses under mikroskop, og i et værk som 'Carambolage' fra 1980 er de tre musikere fordybet i at skabe en hel verden af mikroklange."

Plingets Poetik
"Musikken bevæger sig gennem helt andre lydkilder videre i en på én gang abrupt usammenhængende og samtidig poetisk kontinuerlig bevægelse. Udsagn føjer sig til udsagn. Hver især fremstår de i deres klanglige præcision som afsluttede gesti, uanset om de udgøres af små fraser eller blot en enkeltstående lyd."

Vævet af drømme
5/6 Stars

"”Sirenernes kyst” er som vævet af drømme. ”Carambolage” demonstrerer lidt efter, at selv om Borup-Jørgensen også kan være en hård nyser at gå i lag med, viser hans værker sig ofte som en fortryllende meditation over livets skønhed."
