BLEGVAD, PETER: Opheus, the lowdown
A coherent, integrated work of art. Spoken texts in a world of sounds; concise, complex and for the most part delicately or obliquely set. A model work of experimental radio, but wrapped in a dvd case with a set of dedicated pictures pitched somewhere between a rayogram and '60's bohemian underground graphics alternating with the printed text. Distinguished by a serpentine interconnectedness and a fastidious attention to sonic detail. Different approaches, different voices and different treatments for each tableau keep the ear in the air and the mind off the ground.
