George Zahora, Splendid E-Zine, May 11, 1998

Splendid has reviewed quite a few Ambiances Magnétiques releases in the past few months -enough, I think, for regular readers to have learned to expect challenging music from the label. This sampler makes a great introduction -despite including a lot of quirky electroacoustic sound sculptures, there’s a healthy dose of comparativelytraditional” music here: rich orchestral ensemble works, intimate jazz pieces, street music and frenetic art-rock MlDI-operas. The result is a sampler that’s surprisingly warm and welcoming- a cushion of familiar sounds in which even the most timid listener can safely experiment. Another success for Ambiances Magnetiques
