Brian Olewnick:
A new release from the always enjoyable and uncompromising 845 Audio label: ‘Eidolon’, from Joda Clément, Mathieu Ruhlmann and Tim Olive. A fine balance between harshness and an uneasy kind of stasis. Excellent work.

Nick Ostrum:
A finely crafted session by three of the foremost practitioners of this type of spectral EAI minimalism. Another fine addition to the catalogs of Olive, Ruhlmann and Clément and very much in the vein of what those familiar with the Caduc and 845 Audio sound might expect: abrasive and deceptively static at times, but textured, meandering, and hauntingly beautiful, like an aural exploration of Jasper Johns’ phantasmic experiments with gray on gray.

Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly:
While I am not sure if I have heard all the releases by 845 Audio, I would think that by now there is a common thread to be noticed in many of these releases, and that is a carefully constructed approach to the electro-acoustic end of improvisation. Instruments are not easily recognized in these pieces, save for the odd bow upon strings/cymbal/objects in the final piece. But in the opening piece, we hear a mass of dark sounds, and objects being carefully moved around upon an amplified surface, resulting in a similar yet different and mysterious piece of music.This is quite far removed from the traditional world of improvised music, with hardly any 'normal' instruments and some excellent interaction between the three players, each the master of their domain, knowing what they are doing and reacting accordingly. Excellent music!

During his 2018 and 2019 Canadian tours, Tim Olive joined Vancouver residents Joda Clément and Mathieu Ruhlmann for two trio performances in that fine and strange city. Prior to each live performance, the trio recorded at Mothcow studios, located in a venerable brick building downtown. “Eidolon” has been drawn from those two recording sessions; a small number of structural edits have been made.
