"In a sense, the modular synth used here is both ancient (forty years) and modern sonically. Similar to the sounds of Terry Riley or Tangerine Dream, from the same period (mid-seventies), the sounds here are warm, and often soothing. What I hear is a series of subtle oscillations or waves, pulsating slowly and expanding as they evolve. The music evolves and changes slowly slowly with with occasional drones or waves crashing on the shores in our minds’ vacation places. The overall effect is like creating a somber sonic web, altering our realities quietly and without too much interference or distractions. Today (1/5/17) it is cold and overcast outside my window. The music here is somehow soothing, warm and enchanting in its own way. Will it snow as they predict? Who knows for sure. The music is enticing nonetheless." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, New York City

"In a world where so much is controlled by so few tracks like these demonstrate the resiliency of imagination." - Peter Marks, Santa Sangre Magazine
