Matt Davignon - drum machine
|"Listeners will find themselves rapt with attention, trying to discern in all that murky, bubbling saturation where exactly the drum machine dwells. Like a patient and secretive swamp creature, it doesn’t want to be found, and that is precisely the beauty of this release."
- Dutton Hauhart, Connexion Bizzare
"Patience is necessary, of course, but it will be rewarded many times over. Let the pieces wash over you, ponder the titles if you wish and then see where your mind has wandered. You'll be most pleased with the result."
- J. Worley, Aiding & Abetting
"Matt Davignon makes strange, elastic sounds out of a drum machine. It’s an interesting transformation — instead of dry clicks and snaps, you get long, gloopy tunes, a more liquidy and organic sound than I’d associate with the phrase “drum machine.” The results are interesting little soundscapes, as shown on his earlier albums Bwoo and SoftWetFish. But on the new Living Things, the idea takes a new turn."
-Wedge, Memory Select
"Living Things is like looking at tiny creatures in nature under a microscope - you hear chirps, whirrs, gurgles crackles and many other sounds. Nifty!"
- SAL9000 KFJC 89.7 FM
"Davignon delivers once again a great musical CD...a disc of high quality."
