live recorded concert for flute and electronics,   composition by Christiaan de Jong

review: David Picó S. (Avui) CD, Fuel y Agua Pyxos Records
"Compositor, guitarrista, flautista, experimentador, dinamitzador... Christian de Jong és una figura rellevant, resident a Barcelona, de la música improvisada i més innovadora del moment. Aquest nou CD, Fuel y agua, n'és un bon exemple: sonoritats interioritzades, reflexions prenyades de sentiment, intensitat mesurada i fluida. En aquest sentit, la dolçor de la flauta contrasta amb el to meditatiu, de vegades crispat, de l'obra i l'obscura ambientació electrònica, que evoca el desastre de l'enfonsament en aigües gallegues del petroler Prestige l'hivern de l'any passat."
