Dolce Vita
Dolce Vita
by Iseult Teran
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars a sensitive insight, 6 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Dolce Vita (Hardcover)
This book as a charming insight into the mind of an adolescent girl battling with the harsh and superficial surroundings of chic Paris. The kind of challenges presented must be similar to any girl of her age in a big city.

I found this book to be very touching and, at times, desperately sad as the heroine insesantly lists what her ambitions and ideas with cool attachment; the action in itself betraying the thoughts of a lonely child rather than a uber cool chic mistress of city of life.

Beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, but a film???, 20 Sept. 2006
Not sure about the reviewer who said this book would make a great Spielburg film!!! Surely this book is as British as anything and Spielburg would make a completely hackneyed and tame version probably toning down all the sex and bluntening the violence. What the devil where you thinking?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw emotion, 7 July 2006
What an incredible book this is! The premise outlined in the blurb is promising (children grown in gardens in a tropical london educated via viruses). Seems gloriously messed up and it is easy to happily resign yourself to an exploration of these themes and their ramifications...

Instead you will read of the emotional and physical journey of one of the most remarkable heroines in modern literature. It is through her that we are guided around this very odd world. There are some fantastic shifts in narrative pace and style. Apologies for ruining anything for you but there is a breathtakingly beautiful 50 page chapter which leaves you in such a tangle of emotions that you realise you are totally embroiled in the world of the book and the peaks and troughs of Milena. It is a blistering moment of clarity when all those little questions, that sci-fi books like to throw up, are given some kind of disjointed but final closure. The most fantastic thing about that chapter - indeed, the reason I am writing this review, is that the end leaves you only halfway through a book which you will remember forever. I have been searching for something new this heartfelt in sci-fi for a while and I have found it. Geoff Ryman is one to watch.

Incunabula [VINYL]
Incunabula [VINYL]

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 14 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Incunabula [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Surfing on the wave of the Artificial Intelligence compilation, Sean Booth and Rob Brown swoop into the lime light with Incunabula, their first album under Autechre. Compared to other electronica artists of the time, Autechre already stood far from the crowd. Incunabula is a haunting and sparse echo of the future. Cliched as this sounds, hearing is believing. From the outset, 'Kalpol Intro' sets the scene with three minutes of minimal melody and a faint rhythm that brings to mind a long deserted city scape. Indeed, Incunabula his a very architectural sound to it as Autechre's killer prescision wafts over the listener.
The ambient tracks, such as 'Bike', 'Eggshell' and are filled with hollow emotion. However, dispite the sombre aspect of the booming basslines chasing the fleeting hook melodies, these tracks are filled with an indescribable serenity.
Bearing in mind that this is the vinyl format, plenty of tracks can be used for mixing. The more clubby outings on the album (although pretty much all the tracks have basslines and beats worthy of playing out), 'Bass Cadet,' and 'Doctrine' are monsters in their own right. 'Doctrine' bombards you with slaps and slices of rhythm and a driving, moving bassline. Any of the tracks on this album will produce cheers from any crowd slightly in the know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Upliftingly catatonic, 25 May 2004
These three tracks were recorded especailly for the Peel Sessions. Listening to them you can't help but smile at the thought of John Peel sitting there, scratching his beard. This, however, is beside the point.
Definately one for established fans of Autechre rather than those who just want to try them out. 'Milk DX' displays Autechre's ingenious use of vocals, but rather than distorting them into a rhythm (as per usual), they are used for a haunting, yet strangley funky melody with drives the track along. Inhake 2 is a lovely exploration of a simple, playful melody - put through the Autechre engine the melody is naturally distorted and beaten beyond recognition. The star of the show, without shadow of a doubt (and the reason i bought this EP) is Drone. The slicing, falling-into-place rhythm is superb, the signiture beat a simple break beat affair. It builds to an alarmingly blissed out break that'll either leave you wide eyed or in some kind of coma. Witness some of the last good Autechre before they went off the rails.
