Press Quotes

"Everything was done with a light touch in this 25-minute piece, which built via a series of slow burns to some exhilarating climaxes... The work’s conclusion focused with lovely inventiveness on the beauty of decaying sound.”
The Independent

“Beautiful beats with a hint of swing.”
Evening Standard
