Reviews (The full reviews can be read here.)

“ 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.

“ 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.
