6/10 Brian Staff review, 11 August 2011
Delving back into the drone/sound-art world I find myself with an enigmatic CD by this chaplet. I'm suddenly getting the sound of a compressed toy train ricocheting around my head, now some rustling and tinkering, some guitar drone that somehow resembles the beautiful sound of singing bowls...now I'm down into some industrial cesspit listening to the rumbling of the bowels of inner-earth. But it sounds like traffic is moving overhead. Later on we get the sound of a violin being sawn in half inside a fridge. Possibly. I'm probably not the best person to review this today as I truly can't articulate this music adequately, it's all been done many, many times before and much better. This...this concrete inspired delirium and scraping, clanking...fidgeting...and despite the depth and quality of reproduction, this is still one man's meandering experimental artistic vision that sounds, in style, much like something Seasons (pre-din) would do at the very least, equally well. There are some flecks of remarkable and intriguing sound throughout this CD yet I really can't find the words and enthusiasm - maybe I've just finally reached some kind of impasse with this style of non-music.
