... they wrote about 'Muziektafel/Tafelmuziek (2004)' ... ::

"[...] 0 OK, 0:1 come up with the term "at once good pop music" to describe what they are doing, and although they neither have song structures nor rhythm or catchy melodies, this term is not all ironic. The music is indeed of an easy-going quality at times, with simple melodies played on cheap keyboards or quirky adaptations of popular tunes. However, the next moment it can already be somewhere else, a fierce shortwave drone or some improvisation [...] There are plenty of fine ideas in this music, some of them nice, some of them odd in a highly sympathetic way. And despite all these disparate elements 0 OK, 0:1 manage to give their music an overall friendly character that is present even in the harsher moments [...] an adventurous and real pleasant release ..."

"Op de Tafelmuziek CD luister ik naar de wereld van 'de techniek' in de vorm van digitale tiks en radio ruis, waar achter vandaan de wereld van 'de muziek' af en toe te voorschijn komt met akoestisch, instrumentale klanken. Wat is voorgrond-achtergrond, of inhoud-context zo je wilt? Op Tafel19 hoor je de basklarinet met op de achtergrond een klein kind. Dan opeens een paar Mac error klicks, waardoor ik me opeens bewust wordt dat het geheel zich binnen een computeromgeving afspeelt en niet de een huiskamer met kind op de achtergrond ..." __ [ Paul Oomen, Budapest ]
