«Compared to their first appearance on Test Tube, 'Documents', e:4c from Portugal have gone through considerable stylistic changes in their follow-up release "Technical Unwanted Signals Vol. 1": Not only is this release twice as long, but (contrary to what one might expect) their work is now characterised by brevity and focus on essential signals. The music as such remains experimental, but bleeps and blirps are now integrated in a minimalistic post processing style with vast dynamic changes, ambiguous harmonics and vaguely defined percussive structures. Fleeting impressions of unconsciousness characterise e:4c's research of the world from within.
Despite the impressing number of 22 tracks there's no doubt that what seems to be separated tracks are in fact facettes of an entire unit like scenes of a scifi movie (in this case). And so the mothership continues its journey into the unknown, bewildering, sometimes frightening, but also fascinating microworlds, that quickly rearrange themselves like patterns of a caleidoscope, just by the time the listener can get hold of them.» - Olliver Wichmann

«Mais e:4c...mais Hélder Vasconcelos e José Diogo Correia...
Depois de um ano de 2006 bem agitado, com o lançamento de "Documents" pela Test Tube e "Data Platform" pela Enough Records, chega-nos agora "Technical Unwanted Signals Vol. 1", registo novamente com selo da netlabel Test Tube. Ao todo são 22 faixas de um trabalho minucioso de pura electrónica, ambiental, sempre experimental, testando neste curtos e rápidos momentos de vibração sonora. O espaço...tudo.
Indubitavelmente, interessante!»
