Jorge Castro - Cinética
CD-R (Ponce, PR)



-immune
-impulse
-forward movement




Electric guitar and digital processing by J. Castro
Recorded April 2004

Reviews:
(Dead Angel) This short ep (just under 26 minutes) from experimental guitarist Jorge Castro is anchored in heavy amp drone, especially on the opener "Immune." That throbbing drone gives way without warning to abrupt explosions of processed sound, followed by shifting layers of minimalist riffs and heavily repetitive sounds all enveloped in giant washes of delay and reverb. Slow waves of sound are punctuated by high-pitched peals that reverberate endlessly as the sound continues to mutate. "Impulse" is less infatuated with drone (although there's plenty of it there, along with heavy reverb) than with repetition, with a simple chord progression repeated at length and overlaid with digital processing. The sound of "Forward Movement" is harsher and more distorted, but every bit as anchored in drone and repetition, with overdriven feedback guitar and bursts of what sound like glitch electronica. More whole-grain goodness from one of the more consistently interesting guitar experimentalists around today. -RKF

(Vital Weekly No. 520) Jorge Castro is known for his solo work under his own name or his Cornucopia moniker. The three tracks on 'Cinetica' were already recorded in 2004 and consist of his electric guitar playing along with digital processing. In the first two pieces it's hard to realize that it is actually a guitar sound that we hear, but in the third its clearly so. Here the slightly distorted guitar working its way through some muffled digital effects is not so nice at the start, but towards the end it becomes more crispy clear. The other two tracks have similar effects, but were captivating and more intense. Quite dark this trio. - Franz de Waard

(Aiding & Abetting No. 275) As the liners note, electric guitar and digital processing by Jorge Castro. Not much more than that. Castro likes to set a mood and wallow in it--and he's pretty good at that, too. The three pieces here are strikingly different in tone and ideas, which helps me get in tune with Castro's thinking. Quite intriguing. - Jon Worley

(Indieville) This three-track, twenty-five minute EP from Jorge Castro (aka Clon) is one of the finest drone/experimental electronic releases I've heard from the Public Eyesore label. Castro has an epic but ambient style that works mostly on the level of mood. Using only the electric guitar and a whole lot of digital processing, he has produced a powerful and majestic EP that deserves to be heard by drone lovers the world over. "Immune" is a lesson in tone and pulse, with chimes and bassy hums comprising the vast majority of the piece. "Impulse," meanwhile, starts with some mesmerizing guitar strokes before moving into a gradually shifting journey through electric and electronic sound. Finally "Forward Movement" comes on, injecting a sense of noise and distortion before submerging into an intense mythical zone. There is a strange sense of melody (or, perhaps more accurately, tunefulness) in Cinetica, and it wraps you up in its world before you have a chance to protest. - Matt Shimmer

(Paris Transatlantic) Cinética, divided in three parts – "Immune", "Impulse" and "Forward Movement" – was entirely conceived for electric guitar with digital processing; it lasts only 25 minutes, but it's definitely time well spent. Simple lines or reiterated chords constitute the source for an Ambient picture of slanted space in which fathomless resonances and throbbing waves invade the listening environment with gentle firmness. There are also several moments in which strange swayings, bewitching loops and pitch-transposed harmonies give the mixture an alien halo, flabbergasting and uncertain, as if the music were in search of a definite direction. The passage from the second to the third segment sees Castro kicking in some serious distortion together with something that sounds like crippled shortwaves; this creates a gorgeous cadenza that morphs into a waterfall of infinite-repeat suspension. The whole finally flows into a desiccated, folkish-sounding locked groove, swiftly turned into thin but lethal vapors by Castro's heavy manipulation. - Massimo Ricci

(Ampersand Etcetera) Three tracks of Castro ambience – created on the guitar but also processed. This shifts between pulsing guitar drones and chuddering electronics, humming and fizzles, high tones and bleeps, guitar strums and fuzzy feedback. Like a battle between darkness and light, noise and musicality vie for the foreground in this struggle, and the listener is the victor who gets to sample this too short 33 minutes of spellbinding activity. - Jeremy Keens

(Broken Face) Three slowly unfolding pieces make up guitarist Jorge Castro’s relatively short Cinética. It’s initially not obvious that we’re actually hearing a guitar as everything on the first track is heavily processed. On “Impulse” we get sweeping clouds of ambient guitar works that fills the space of a big hall in a second and then never really let’s go. It’s a bit like being stuck in time or traveling through the desert at dawn. Lovely. - Mats Gustafsson
