EKG: Electricals :: another timbre 16 (2009)

"Eerie, spacious, electronic and other odd sounds are carefully placed upon clouds of silence, drifting or floating in the air. Static, quiet yet effective spurts, analogue synth fragments, music concrete snips, all well crafted and selectively placed." (Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery)

EKG & Giuseppe Ielasi: Group :: Formed 105 (2006)

EKG & Giuseppe Ielasi: Group :: Formed 105 (2006)

"Composed of microscopic electronics, floating brass instrument tones and prepared/tabletop guitar events, Group -- paradoxically -- rocks. . . The music is quiet but not undemanding, careful listening yielding subtle vistas and engaging sonic environments. . . The pieces arise, unfold and then depart with a stately logic all their own. . . Group is a fine example of the kind of genre hybridisation that typifies early 21st century music. (Bruce Russell, The Wire)

EKG: No Sign :: Sedimental 041 (2005)

"EKG is capable of a langorous lyricism while in other cases this tendency is willfully crushed and ground down into a gritty landscape of fine-grained glass and silt. Open and inviting tones draw the listener in at the same time tenser noisy outbursts work to alienate. Tightly controlled grainy textures splutter to life and dissolve into hovering drones. The sequencing can be jarring, but the effect is of an irregular pendulum's swing - a fevered and woozy oscillation through tension and release." (Steve Rybicki, fakejazz.com)

EKG: Object 2 :: Locust Music 24 (2003)

". . . a set of six austere, slow moving soundscapes in keeping with the prevailing tendency in new improvised music to move away from rapid-fire interplay towards territory more traditionally associated with contemporary classical and electronic music. . . patient exploration of the microtonal and micro-timbral inflections of long-held tones, which combine with Karel's plaintive trumpet and the grainy analog electronics, blasts of white noise and crackling static to create music of an extraordinary intensity which richly repays repeated listening." (Dan Warburton, Paris Transatlantic Magazine)
