Dossier de presse (commentaires de compositeurs reconnus)
Comments (mostly from quality composers)

"The sonic materials he employs encompass modern chamber music and certain sounds from the popular tradition, such as drum kit and electric guitar, but they are treated in much the same way that William S. Burroughs liked to treat his text, as formally unanchored elements within an apparently stochastic sequence. To what extent this work is aleatory or improvised, and to what extent it is constructed, is impossible to determine, and doesn’t matter a great deal; the experience of listening is one that undercuts any comfortable reliance on a predictable resolution or cyclicity, while maintaining some narrative sense through the relative stability of the broad strokes of texture. The poetry that accompanies the release carries denotational meanings consistent with this approach, its female protagonists in seeming conflict with their worlds; while they display the strength usually ascribed to female deities, these archetypes are used to point at altogether more uncertain and dangerous experiences than is usual in modern reinterpretations of myth. It is a major creative risk for a man to tackle women’s experience in any depth, but here the composer’s courage makes for music that demands active engagement, and richly rewards it."
http://oliverarditi.com/2012/08/09/various-artists-album-roundup-011/

"Et Elle avait raison Hathor est clairement une coche ou deux au-dessus des récents opus de Bergeron, un artiste singulier s’il est en est, dont les pièces se construisent à partir d’une déconstruction",
Monsieur Délire
Vincent Berger Rond - Interview for gajoob

""[...] this music is very visual and reminds of a collage or montage in fine art. [...] Think laterally, out of the box, or better still, don't think and just listen and get into the music, and Vincent Berger Rond's Elle avait raison Hathor will grow on you! There is something almost mystically compelling about this album.",

Perfect Sound Forever 2011

It is nice to appear in the same list than millionaires rockers like Sigur Ros (Innis) prog rock forces of nature's Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Marco Oppedisano Electroacoustic Compositions for Electric Guitar also made the same list by writer Mark S. Tucker. Since Mark is one of the only persons I sent [{ }] to (realizing most writers focus on ambient-like electronic music and rock since many years, I ended up really selective instead of wasting my money), it is encouraging me to send more CD-r to prove that it is possible to be recognized in CD-r and through Internet promotion where the listeners are much easier to find for me

    Not sure how you get that sound, but it both sound like a live free jazz and something from electronic music without the synth traces. One of the best pieces heard on soundcloud !!

    You have your own minimal rock going on, slightly remind me of The Wire, specially with the soft synth behind, but the guitar loops are coming in and out your way.

    The use of voice is different here, less neutral reading, more dramatic, part of a space, a bar with a lonely man inside himself ?

    Easily my favorite and most impressive piece I listened on this page well uploading my own. It has a special kind of psychological effect that defies any easy association. Any movie piece integrating this music would need to be highly creative and expressive in order to sstand a chance of not looking bad in compatrison to it.

    Like Brian Eno on a U2 record. Something rock is waiting in line. The thrill is to know when it will kick in. Sound presence is building slowly like it is expected of the genre. New digital glitches make the comparison with Eno on U2 not so good anmore. Good choices in passing-by sound textures.
