Reviews (The full reviews can be read here.)

“...an aural equivalent of sunlit dust motes in an empty, creaky house.”
William Hutson, The Wire.

“...His elliptical approach is brilliant, and his understated imagination never falls asleep for a minute, completely transcending the technique.”
Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector.

“...it just doesn’t sound in any way generic, and there is something refreshingly, oddly original about how it is all put together...”
Richard Pinnell, The Watchful Ear

“... a thought provoking, intimate piece of sound composition... Film noir for the ears.”
Chris Whitehead, The Field Reporter.
