There is something obsessively beautiful about this work that really appeals to me and will undoubtedly appeal to many other people who are willing to really listen.” - Oren Ambarchi “The architecture of this album struck me as being ambitious, brave and quite delicate… it’s a courageous piece. The album also has an amazing cast of some of the west coasts finest minds of experimental music: Eyvind Kang, Jessika Kenney, Timba Harris, Don McGreavy… and last but not least Aaron Turner.” - Stephen O’Malley.
