INFINITESIMAL on the best albums of 2013 list of  The Esoterrorist (USA)

INFINITESIMAL on Pitchfork - The Out Door  - Long Careers, Busy Years - Reflecting on some of the best experimental sounds of the year. (USA)

« Bérangère Maximin’s Infinitesimal is so alive with the sounds of the external world that I initially couldn't locate her musical voice inside all of the activity. But as the album proceeds, ghosts of order emerge, through glimpses of symmetrical shapes and flashes of matching colors. Slowly, Infinitesimal establishes internal logic, matching the way things make sense in your head even if you can’t explain them. Maximin credits herself only with “voice, laptop, and various objects,” but she uses those minimal tools to drill a bottomless sound-well. And where previous records were more collaborative, Infinitesimal feels like her most personal statement yet. »
