“Sublime” [Silence and Sound]
“What makes this work really shine out is its musical quality… The string work, exquisitely recorded and sorrowful, fuses and transitions with the electronic work in a way that really elevates the latter. It’s a truly well-formed musical hybrid that makes the artificial feel natural and vice versa.” [Chain D.L.K.]
“With segments of monologue and dialogue chopped up and scattered, sometimes overlapping with one another as well as the musical backing, which isn’t exactly musical or backing, so much as a shimmering, shifting sonic collage, if not exactly reminiscent of William Burroughs’ audio experiments, then very much a sonic interpretation of the cut-up technique in its simultaneous representations of multiple events and perspectives. Because every moment is a moment of change and the pieces on the stilling are constructed around a continual shift, it’s disorientating by design. Scrambling the mutter lines, it’s the soundtrack to your soundtrack.” [Aural Aggravation]

“…a hauntingly strange and mysterious immersion into a crackling entropy of phantom radio transmissions, squalls of static, choruses of insects, and creepily digitized voices.” [Brainwashed]

“Both of A Perfect Blind’s long form pieces have brief samples of telephonic voice that emerge out of drøne’s delicate and refined weave of suspended electronics and stealthy strings. They suggest a meditation on distant webs of communication, like a watchful alien intelligence who for centuries has remained curious but too circumspect and wary to make contact. However, as they steadily and gracefully travel to their conclusions, both pieces develop into more musical passages, perhaps to inject a sense of pathos, as if memories of beauty are identified in wake of the more foreboding environments of the present.” [The Quietus]
