Press Quotes

"Here, Floex sounds much more measured, dark and serious—perhaps a reflection of the theme of fragility but also a sign of the times too, with the pandemic sweeping across Europe during his composition period. Yet, Floex’s blend of style between electronica and orchestra is beautifully crafted. It’s as if the experience he’s had while working with Tom Hodge has made him understand how to blend strings with electronic music in a patient style. What we have here is Floex’s most mellow work, reflecting the goal he set out to achieve, a soundtrack that leaps between depth and fragility." ― IGLOO MAGAZINE

“Floex has again moved up in his work a little. He has learned new skills that will come in handy in the future. ‘Papetura’ is a varied and colourful soundtrack, that fully supports the environment in which the adventure game takes place. The music masterfully speaks in the language of the two main characters―even if no words can be heard, you will recognise what joint goal the two heroes pursue and who the initiator of the events is. The fantastic visuals of the game were fitted with an equally exquisite soundtrack built on Tomáš’s versatility and multi-talent.” ― MUSICSERVER

“Tomáš Dvořák has the precious gift of being able to tell a story through music. On Papetura, he is by far the best at it. The legendary Machinarium and all the parts of Samorost are great, but they break up a bit into individual ideas. Here, you will not find fewer melodies, ideas and atmospheres, but they are all closed into a firm, calmly flowing whole that creates a story with all its twists, victories and defeats. A musical adventure.” ― FULLMOON MAGAZINE

“The instrumental tracks combine the grandiosity of film orchestras, the ornateness of baroque pop, but they are not afraid of minimalist tenderness and of fragile piano tones that correspond so well with the world of the game.” ― REFLEX
