“To experience Copernicus is to witness a personal struggle…the struggle of an artist in search of the most effective means to communicate his vision: that the world around us which we perceive as reality, is in fact an illusion, and the truth is that nothing exists.”
Call me weird (some folks do already), but I am a sucker for a good rant – written, spoken or shouted. In hair-raising bloviations of Copernicus, performance poetry morphs to performance rant. And when his metaphysical abstract texts are joined by improvisatory music, the result can be mind-bending. Or hilariously scary, if You come to the party in an altered state of consciousness. …. you just might find yourself among the heady elite who actually get this guy. – JOHN COLLINGE, PROGRESSION MAGAZINE (USA)
Joining up with the MoonJune was one of his best moves; though qualitative differences between one Copernicus’ release and the next are impossible to discern, there’s nonetheless a renewal of élan in this partnership that’s noticeable – and, so’s ya knows, there is no such thing as ‘best’ with Copernicus, it’s all the best. – MARK TUCKER, FAME (USA)
Copernicus rants that matter is energy, that the force of gravity can be felt throughout the universe, and that matter can become mind. I’ve said it before, and I am happy to repeat it: This is art. I love it. – PETER VAN LAARHOVEN, UNITED MUTATIONS (Belgium)
The nucleus of Copernicus’ biting dissertations revolves around the analysis of subatomic matter, theories which he exposes with the clarity of a lucid philosopher but also with the attitude of a visionary drunkard. Believe it or not, going on with the listening experience means that you get somewhat tangled in this man’s prophetic mindset, and the pulsating, often scintillating background offered by the superb supporting band. – MASSIMO RICCI, TOUCHING EXTREMES (ITALY)
He is trying to confront, shock, and move us, using words, shouts, and the reality of our inevitable descent into the ”nevermore”. – MICHEL LAVASSEUR, FIMAV, VICTORIAVILLE FESTIVAL (CANADA)
