about

"This consistently engaging tape plays tricks on your perceptions by displaying large sheets of texture that overlap one another so that it becomes impossible to discern whether they are organic or synthetic. Under this he further confounds us with barely perceptible voices that haunt from afar. Filled with a strange beauty, it evokes images of imaginary landscapes." (Kim Cascone, Option Magazine, 1985)

"This oeuvre is, essentially, a collection of eight distinctive textures, some thematically straightforward (Tango), some rather more abstract (Mu). Sometimes foreboding, sometimes soothing, sometimes abrasive... they all achieve an hypnotic effect and incite seemingly intentional images." (Box Of Water)

"Non-stop lark through white noise. A pitched crescendo of silvery layers. The sound at times is like a waterfall. There are voices lost in the mist and steam of the hiss. Sometimes things burst through for a moment, a swatch of oriental music, little openings reveal the sources for really fragile moments." (Ear Magazine, Aug/Sept. 1986)
