Aqua Madora Released | 2011


Christian Carey reviews Aqua Madora for Sequenza 21

"An aside: I wasn't the only one in the house to be floored by the piece. Our tabby cat, Happy, comes running every time I put it on, and blisses out between the speakers."

Aqua Madora reviewed in Textura

"Appropriate to the title's water allusion, the reverberations produced by the piano's sustain creates an impression of fluidity between the notes played, as if they possess a liquidy dimension that allows them to flow into one another."

"Once I stopped performing with the dance, and in other works without any sort of time constraints, my work got longer, but also found its natural rhythm."


The Third Pillar reviewed in London | 2010


Scott McMillan reviews a live performance for The Liminal

"a moment of relative calm, of stillness, and of pleasingly soporific and mind-emptying purity... This was no fast forward, just a long, slow slide into nothingness."


Analog Apparitions Released | 2010

Boomkat issues a heavy machinery warning

"these compositions are concerned with the just-intonation and "purity of sine waves in complex prime-harmonic relationships" which sounds incredibly intimidating, but is actually quite beautiful, if you've ever succumbed to the work of La Monte Young, or felt your chakras quivering while listening to the likes of Eleh. The experience is ritualistic and enveloping and shouldn't be undertaken while operating heavy machinery."
