Press Quotes

“Floex’s second album Zorya was released five years ago, but the soundtrack to the computer game Samorost 3 is equally interesting. The author was offering it on his website already in March, but now it is available also on a double LP and a CD. After the soundtracks to logical ‘point-and-click’ adventure games Samorost 2 and Machinarium, this is his third project for Amanita Design. The first change compared to the second game in the series is only a formal one. The 27 tracks bear English names, because the games were successful abroad as well. The mixture of styles comprises again of elements of ambient, classical music, minimalism and ethno music, but the arrangements that combine electronics with acoustic instruments (mainly the clarinet, piano and colourful percussions), are richer. Several guests also contribute to the variety of colour, particularly the violoncellist Tomáš Jamník who collaborates with a number of world orchestras and, apart from his main instrument, plays the baroque viola da gamba and the erhu―a Chinese violin―on three tracks.” ― ROCK & ALL

“More than ever, Floex proves his playfulness, richness of imagination, unwillingness to be bound by any creative or genre boundaries. On the other hand, he also demonstrates his eye for detail and elaborate structure of the individual compositions. More than ever before―even with all due respect to his successful work on ‘Machinarium’ or solo albums like ‘Zorya’ and ‘Pocustone’―he comes across as a kind of likeable painter-wizard, who, free of any restrictions, draws out his intimate compositions with grandiose gestures onto an imaginary canvas using loops, noises, walls of sound, etc. Of course, Floex’s favourite instrument, the clarinet, has to be included as well. No wonder that most of the individual tracks work even without the visual component. A pleasantly colourful, mood-setting and refreshing recording.” ― E15
