À propos de OKURA 73°N - 42°E
par Hubert Napiórsk (Felthat-Review) :

« Lionel Marchetti works in the field of musique concrete which he personally refers to as "loudspeaker art".
Various collaborations and his solo work gave a really refreshing view to what is sound and how it can be used.
Here with Yoko Higashi works out the formula of spectral collage based on the field recorded sounds and voices mingled with modulars which he crafts beautifully in 3 pieces.
The material is not too long which gives this special kind of feeling that you strive for more.
But it is a perfect scenario.
No useless sounds, no maiming the listener with some promises which aren't kept then.
Great work! » Hubert Napiórsk/2009

"From the Musica Genera label in Warsaw, a splendid example of contemporary electro-acoustic compositional work by Lionel Marchetti and Yôko Higashi. On Okura 73° N – 42° E (MUSICA GENERA G005), they each get one solo piece and then collaborate on the last cut. Marchetti’s ‘Pétrole 73’ instantly begins on a shrill, menacing tone and stays there, with a taste as sharp as ground glass. Higashi has done some exemplary and memorable work for the Entr’Acte label (matter of fact, that label is also releasing a CD called Pétrole by this pair which is presumably related in some way), and she’s full of jarring cinematic effects, electronic diablry, and great vocal work from Big Sandra and Chico Antonio. The collaborative piece is also excellent. Plenty of analogue electronics, uncanny vocalising, radio samples and field recordings, all put together with sharp imaginative flair and great intelligence. A dark and troubling record, whose cover artworks of uncharted waters, sea monsters and mermaids all serve to confirm that the aim of this work is to leave us stranded in the mental oceans of the unknown."
