All electronic sounds were derived in real time from the acoustic instruments and all music composed by Josep Lluís Galiana and Thomas Bjelkeborn.

“The creations of Thomas Bjelkeborn and Josep Lluís Galiana put into circulation all kinds of musical textures, colors and pulsing truly amazing. The dialogue between the saxophones of Galiana and the exquisite live electronics of Bjelkeborn moves us to relaxing enviroments, in which the pulsation almost disappears, enabling a fluidity of musical ideas and sound materials quite suggestive. CRITICAL SOUNDS is an exciting disc, where the energy does not come from the sound intensity, but from the interaction between the acoustic and electronic world, that it transports the listener into distant and still unknown landscapes.” P.C.
