Boomkat Product Review:
"Tempo is a decisive factor in how we relate to music. Whole genre separations and notions of taste can revolve around the BPM at which samples are triggered or musicians play. In live music BPM is obviously often a fluctuating quantity, a loose constrict affected by the musicians' spirits / audience / etc. Electronic music genres are usually more rigid in their adoption of a tempo and the BPM often comes to define a scene's aesthetic. NMO have used this release to play with the really quite hefty and serious concept of speed (& slowness), timing, and BPM. 'Natalia Martínez Ordóñez' is a studio recording of an outdoor piece commissioned by CO² Festival in Beirut in 2014, where the initial idea of a one hour piece has been condensed in a 30 minute record. The piece has been performed in Beirut, Krakow, and London."
