Reviews

Here are some reviews about Franco Esteve’s work:

Dimensional Drift

Dimensional Drift … exudes an otherworldly aura that envelops the listener in a warm embrace that seems to come from distant galaxies. This evocative composition will mesmerize your senses, inviting you to delve deep into the recesses of your mind and bask in the sheer beauty and wonderment of life… Franco Esteve ingeniously captures the essence of love and tranquility, elevating the listener to a higher plane of existence…. His ability to craft melodies that intertwine with our deepest desires and transport us to ethereal realms is truly remarkable.” – The Jamsphere Magazine review of Dimensional Drift, June 23rd, 2023.

Franco Esteve has created a beautiful and transportive work… Normally I am a bit averse to this work, but with “Dimensional Drift” Esteve hits something just right – a calming but deeply melodic take on ambient and new age music that feels organic and lived in. – The Tome to the Weather Machine take on “Dimensional Drift“, June 28th, 2023.

 

A Moment of Madness

“The perfectly formulated mix is a match with Franco ’s artfully cinematic compositional style, revealing his distinctive personality and his ability to blend in different styles so seamlessly… The listening experience is unparalleled, revealing the artist’s passion and care for creating quality music that will undoubtedly stand the test of time… If you like atmospheric ambient music with a more organic feel, this one is for you.” – The Bandcamp Diaries review of “A Moment of Madness“, April 15th, 2022.

 

“Franco Esteve poignantly blends the erhu… to express a moment of afflicted human perplexity, and it works beautifully.”

“one of “Franco Esteve’s… most poignant compositions, and the effect of this brilliant and concise piece of work is immediate, emotionally engaged, and fully immersive.” – The Jamsphere Magazine review of “A Moment of Madness“, April 23rd, 2022.

 

Apocalypse

“Franco Esteve has delivered on the titles promise in the aptly titled track, Apocalypse. Unsettling and thought provoking, Apocalypse is an exploration in dissonance and contrast that weaves and twirls as it moves towards its sudden conclusion. A piece worthy of our current uncertain times.” – Nagamag Music Magazine Review, July, 6th, 2021

“the haunting melodies and atmospheres will hold your attention scrupulously as it gradually magnifies in darkness and urgency… Hauntingly atmospheric and staggering in its scope, “Apocalypse: The Doll Chronicles (Original Soundtrack)” is here to assert itself as deeply compelling evidence for the gargantuan artistic value of Franco Esteve’s scoring work.” – Jamsphere Music Magazine Review, August 2021

“suitably dark and delicious, epic and expansive, perfect to drive a film about a woman living on the edge of reality and being chased across a desolate and dystopian landscape by the darkness and trauma of her own past… Perhaps because the music in these newly restored concepts is less directly tied to the final storyline, they reveal themselves to be more adventurous and experimental… it is here that the music seems broader in its scope, heightened in its anticipation, deeper, darker, more decayed, more…well, just more!” – Dancing About Architecture Review, August 2021

8 out of 10: Interesting soundtrack to an interesting film… Franco Esteve presents a fantastic sound spectacle on the soundtrack… an interesting musical companion, behind which there is not only a fantastic composer, but also an artist who is fantastic with different timbres , acoustic paintings come to life… Franco Esteve proves to be a sound tinkerer who has the right feel for appealing musical accompaniments”She Wolf, German Music Magazine, September 2021 (in German)

Contagion

“Notwithstanding the fact that this work comes from a dark, disturbed and frustrating place, it has an astonishing, subtle, hypnotic beauty that remains revelatory after countless listens.” – Jamsphere Magazine review of Franco Esteve’s pandemic life soundtrack, Contagion, June 3, 2020: http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/franco-esteve-contagion-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-poignantly-and-veraciously-reflected

“an album soaked in a tinge of devastating darkness and depth…the virus has come to stay, but so has Esteve’s music… We accept this new electronic requiem, for the new times that await us and we celebrate his music…”
Cap Vermell Magazine review (in Catalan) of Franco Esteve’s pandemic life soundtrack, Contagion, June 30, 2020: http://capvermell.org/index.php/cultura/noticies/26608-disquisicions-poetiques-contagion-arriba-a-capdepera

The Hunt

“The true magic of The Hunt is that Franco Esteve, with all his cinematic dexterity did not compose this music as a background to any film. Rather, he composed as a backdrop to life itself.” – Jamsphere Magazine review of “The Hunt

The Wait

“Esteve has composed a glistening tune that is simultaneously diaphanous and sensitive, yet emancipated and emotive.” – Huffington Post review of “The Wait

The Doll Chronicles Series

Quicksand
