AirEffect is a real and highly imaginative flow of sounds made up of tone research and electronic background, where musicians bring the audience to unexpected and usual places. It develops in structured scenes, each of which is part of a descriptive process evolving without interruptions.
The artistic journey by the musicians is brought to life through AirEffect where jazz is assimilated into pure experimental music and typical electronic sounds. Everything is blended into an artistic mixture which goes beyond common beauty standards and the predetermined characterizations, recalling, at the same time, ancient rhythmic traditions and hypnotic themes typical of contemporary electronic music.
"The feel this music transmits is...timeless, the horns and nature samples evoking a post-historic wilderness as much as the eerie electronic soundscapes set up a decidedly sci-fi flavor" Tiny Mixtapes
"The trio’s album AirEffect is intended to act as a “black box” for the current age"
"If the Anthropocene really does exist, then “AirEffect” is an archaeological search for traces of the post-Anthropocene, giving us a glimpse into the here and now."
Andreas Walker, Wiener Zeitung (in German)
"AirEffect is music against time, a black box that captures, conserves, and spits-out the sounds of a new era."
Stefan Niederwieser, The Gap (in German)
"OZmotic & Christian Fennesz strongly rely on vocal samples to accent the field recordings and saxophone elegies that make-up “AirEffect”, a “time-capsule” of an album that transports listeners into an acoustic impression of the Anthropocene. Very atmospheric, very crisp and invigourating, and not even remotely boring."Westzeit (in German)
