COBSCOOK BAY MUSIC NOTES (Issue 11/2016)

There is so much to listen to in an Attila Vural song. Rhythmic patterns, baselines, melody, tempo changes - each playing brings another surprise if you put everything aside and really listen. "Another Strumming in the Blue" is packed with examples of this. Starting with "Painting a Reverie" which, although short and solo, sounds like a trio of percussion, bass, and jazz guitar.

WICKED LOCAL MA NEWSPAPER - Oct 7, 2016


If you've never seen Attila Vural perform, you've got to check him out. The Swiss guitarist is a dazzling musician. His dexterity and speed, his incorporation of percussive rhythms and his original music are extraordinary. His instruments are unique works of art, in particular, his dobromandola, a hybrid designed by Vural, with two necks jutting out from the body in a vee. Watching him move up, down and around the instrument is a mesmerizing experience.

    

GERMAN MAGAZINE 'GUITAR Acoustic' wrote (Issue 2/2016)

Moonbeams Rise as Quavers - Attila Vural Beautiful? No. His music has never been beautiful in the strict sense, however, it is well received by his world-wide audience. An evening with Attila Vural, exciting and indescribably touching, leaves the listener spoiled with a rough taste of the real world. Even though his new opus was recorded in Woodstock where endless wide woods and lush green mountains make the real world seems fresh and wonderful, this non-conformist Swiss does not let himself suddenly convert to odes of a heavenly, pure melodious sound. On a number of somewhat unusual (string) instruments, Vural plays his powerful, frizzy, unpredictable and willful music while creating sounds with nearly every imaginable resource (on this record also with E-Bow) including strings and guitar bodies which taste mostly earthy at first, but then often turn into a heavenly finish. In contrast to mainstream music which appears digitally smoothed, VuralÕs approach is more authentic and pleasant with the constant element of restlessness and angularity in an acoustic mix of delta blues, folk, grunge and classical modern age. His latest work, 'Moonbeams Rise As Quavers', is his most accessible and mature so far: despite all severity and occasional dissonance, it contains beautiful, relaxed melodies or percussively-spiced fingerpicking-grooves of miraculously-spun eccentricity ('Squirrel Meeting'). The final track played as an instrumental, 'Harvest Moon', is a delightful homage to Neil Young. It brings to the point what the Swiss is capable of: With him one still feels the grit under their feet while indulging in the moonlight. Both are needed to bring the real magic together. - Michael Lohr / German Acoustic Guitar Magazine 2/2016

SPECIALIST MAGAZINE OF GERMANY 'GUITAR & BASS', 2010/07/18

To extend the limits of an instrument such as a guitar would seem to be hardly possible, which makes what Swiss acoustic guitarist Attila Vural has accomplished on his newest album "Some Place of Sounding" even more impressive. He mainly plays an 8 string guitar and a two-neck model with 14 strings. Virtuoso, he plays all his instrumental compositions (with the exception of one track with vocals) and manages to merge typical fingerstyle guitar with folk, jazz and blues music. It`s remarkable which sounds he produces with his hands only: overtone cascades, individual flat or sharp notes intoned, polyphonic and flat chords - with alternating fast virtuoso excursions guaranteed. Also noticeable is his percussive playing, in which he includes his guitar in its entirety by drumming on top and sides of his instrument. All this often sounds like two instruments, but Vural stressed in the booklet: "This is a live recording with no overdubs, no loops or edits." Exceptional!

AKUSTIK GITARRE, Ausgabe Juni/Juli 2019

Der Schweizer Gitarrist Attila Vural ist Spezialist für ungewöhnliche Doubleneck-Gitarren. Sein neuestes Instrument wurde von den Gitarrenbauern Gerhard Arns und Rainer Kallenbach gebaut: eine 15-saitige DoppelhalsKonstruktion mit einem Semi-Fretless-Klassikgitarrenhals und einem Fretless-Ukulelenhals.

Mannheimer Morgen, 17.04.2018

Musik schafft eigene Welten: Wundertüte und Kuriositätenkabinett, Wechselbad und Wellness für die Ohren - wenn Claus Boesser-Ferrari zur Internationalen Gitarrennacht lädt, dann gibt es nichts Erwartbares ausser dem blossen Wissen: Das, was der grauhaarige Ausnahmekünstler in seine gute Stube lädt, hat Weltniveau und kommt niemals "von der Stange". Nach dem Opener, mit dem Claus Boesser-Ferrari gewohnt ungezwungen mit viel Kraft bis zum beherzten Hauch zum Schluss unter Beweis stellte, warum der Laudenbacher zu den ganz Grossen seines Genres gehört und sein Tourplan für dieses Jahr mit unter anderem Indien, dem Libanon, Vietnam, Taiwan, China und Marokko nach Weltreise klingt, griff Attila Vural zur Gitarre. Mit rassigem Anschlag, den er mit kleinen akustischen Sahnehäubchen prononciert und solidem Gesang, der mit einem ungeziert natürlichen Duktus interessiert, fesselt er seine Zuhörer mit einer beeindruckend facettenreichen Musik, die immer auch sehr viel Power atmet. Der Genius, der mit 14 zur Gitarre griff und unter anderem bei CBF studierte, mischt auf eigenständige Weise Stile, Stimmungen, fährt weit ins Land. Ob mit seinem musikalischen Denkmal für den Indianer auf dem amerikanischen "Buffalo-Nickel", einer Fantasie "To a Memory" oder dem fantasievoll-ausdrucksstarken "Snap of Fire" - immer weiss der Mann mit grosser Musik und zurückhaltender Geste zu inspirieren.

Und tatsächlich hält man die Luft an angesichts der Virtuosität und Vielfältigkeit, mit der er seinen Instrumenten Klänge, Töne, Melodien GUITAR Acoustic, Ausgabe 3/2012

Der Schweizer Vural geniesst unter den renommierten Akustik-Innovatoren seit Jahren einen sehr guten Ruf. Nicht ganz so filigran wie sein berühmter Kollege Andy McKee, dafür aber mit mehr Mut zum Experimentellen, serviert er auf seiner neuen Scheibe zwölf Neukompositionen zwischen Atmo-, Blues, Experimental- und Ethno-Sounds. Und das sowohl auf der Sechs- und Zwölf- als auch auf der Vierzehnseitigen!entlockt.
