Notes

Presque Tout is a collection of works spanning 20 years of sonic activity. This 7 hour long edition presents some of the artist’s most tantalizingly subtle pieces. Re-defining the limits of “quiet” and “silent” well beyond any previous references in both conventional and experimental music, López has significantly contributed to the creation of an exceptional territory of sonic experience for the most adventurous listeners. Forcefully away from the “conceptual”; full of hidden complexity and detail; emphasizing the emotional, personal, and spiritual in the most unconventional and unexpected ways.

This LINE data DVD audio release charts for the first time that territory as a whole. Culled from many out of print editions, most of these compositions have been unavailable commercially for many years. Presque Tout also contains a new 3 hour work “Untitled #313.”

This data DVD edition contains 7 hours of audio files (uncompressed 44kHz/16-bit).

WARNING: Due to the extreme subtlety of these recordings, virtually all of the audio content is completely inaudible through laptop or equivalent small speakers. Quality speakers or headphones—as well as a very quiet surrounding environment—are highly recommended for ideal listening.

To call Lopezs work minimalist would be something of an understatement. The pieces here range from five minutes to three hours, and are comprised of hushed tones, barely-there frequencies and near silent field recordings. Laptop speaker listeners are advised to procure a decent pair of headphones or speakers, as its very possible to entirely miss the arrangements without them. Line US.

Tracks 7 and 14 refuse to play (at least on my copy.) Every attempt just skips from 6 to 8 and 13 to 15. Does anyone else have a copy that plays properly throughout and can confirm that it's not an authoring error?

This is an excellent collection of sub-bass deep and dark ambient. Love it! But yes, super quiet recordings.

These 'pieces' are so quiet that they are completely inaudible 99% of the time, even on headphones, turned up very loud, in a near-silent environment (save lights and a fridge).

Any audio engineer with some sense knows that it's best to mix as loud as you can without clipping waveforms, because the quieter you are, the more you will be able to hear the noise floor. The only way I can hear any sound in these pieces is if I turn up the system so loud that the noise floor is clearly audible, effectively ruining the supposed subtle effect of the music. Even at this volume, the noise floor is much louder than anything Lopez has contributed.

I consider this worthless. It's like buying a release completely comprised of silence.
