Reviews
By Pierre Cécile at Le son du grisli
Voilà une cassette qui ne me fait pas regretter d’avoir rebranché ma vieille platine (Sony, désolé). Non pas parce qu’elle est dorée, ni parce qu’elle se glisse dans un étui carton (lui-même protégé par une gaine noire) avec du papier d’Arménie tamponné « For Nina », mais parce qu’elle m’informe de l’existence de Patrick Thinsy. En fouillant bien, je suis tombé ici, où j’ai appris que Thinsy a déjà collaboré avec Ignaz Schick, z’ev ou Martin Tétreault, et qu’il semble vénérer Phill Niblock. Bonnes références, donc, qui n’étonneront pas les chanceux qui pourront mettre la main sur l’un des cinquante exemplaires de sa cassette. Car la première face accouche d’un drone fragile mais qui ne s’oublie pas comme ça. Comme un brin de chromosome, il fait des tours et des détours au milieu d’autres sons, aussi fragiles et subtiles que lui. La face B se contente d’un buzz, de coups de burin et de clics : est-elle moins originale pour autant ? Eh bien non, car une voix de femme fait son entrée. Son enregistrement est découpé et ajoute à la bizarrerie de son message en français et de sa diction. C’est donc une tout autre atmosphère… et une tout autre réussite. Patrick Thinsy, enchanté !

By Brian Olewnick at Just Outside
Two fine electronic tracks form Thinsy, a new name to me. The first shimmers vaguely into existence, the merest wave, gradually developing a slow pulse. A higher pitch is added, almost in sync with the previous pulse but just enough off to provide a delicious quaver. A harsher layer is applied, that pulsation becoming deeper on the one and, generating quasi-beeps on the other. A concise piece that does what it needs to do in 12 minutes and then retires; excellent. The second begins with a lower, deeper thrum, again undergoing a slight additive process. But about four minutes in, a rhythmic tapping emerges, a spare but complex dance between semi-metallic strikes and paired pneumatic sighs. Very effective, very eerie. More so when a calmly speaking female voice enters (in French), eventually, slightly, splitting, becoming the sole element as the piece ends. An impressive, unusual release–try it!

By Frans de Waard in Vital Weekly
The first tape is by Thinsy himself, and it’s quite short, twenty minutes perhaps in total. Of course I’m guessing here, but for all I know, this seem to be two pieces recorded with tone generators right inside a space – the living room maybe of Thinsy himself – with on the second side also some odd bang – heating system? – and a voice? These pieces have certainly a nasty frequency about them but it sounds, despite perhaps its obscurity, quite interesting. Working extensively on the eardrums. Nice.
