"This latest recording comes as they look back upon 25 years of collaboration as the Logos Duo. More than a retrospective, we see them affirming a long artistic relationship and forging new horizons--together and on divergent musical paths. In this, their work is a metaphorical journey: an inward exploration of the
Read more elegance of algorithmic composition and a voyage out into distant soundscapes. This CD from Godfried-Willem Raes and Moniek Darge is both a literal and figurative journey; in sound and music we have the Yin­Yang energy that is the Logos Duo. Enjoy listening!" - Douglas Quin

"The duo has a rugged individualism which gives it a distinct American flavor absent from most European modernists." -New York Tribune

"I particularly liked Man­Mo, a mood piece by Darge, incorporating insect sounds recorded in the bush near Darwin and used to complement Raes playing clarinet and Darge on violin.This was a most successful evocation of primordial night. I imagine that Bartok, with his penchant for suggesting nocturnal nature in his music, would have loved it. A great deal of music and music theatre work written nowadays dwells on the less attractive aspects of the human condition--anxiety, violence, hysteria and sleaze. How refreshing, then, to encounter the gentleness of Man­Mo." - Neville Cohn in The West Australian (Perth)

"Logos Duo, one of Europe's leading ensembles for avant-garde music, multi-media performance and improvisation," - The Darwin Star (Australia)
