"A serious recording by two great composers/improvisers. Most sounds are characterized by a metallic/resonant quality: mercurial shifts find their place in my brain through juxtaposed acoustic and electric instruments.

"Long, open atmospheres and harsh yet subdued textures join with more delicate sounds of the inside piano; heavy drones that constantly shift into new directions move in and out of these challenging pieces. It's a difficult work, and one of immediacy that demands your attention and cannot be pushed into the background. And nor would you want to. Sharp and Friedl are intent on creating challenging pieces in order to explore new combinations of sounds, personalities and techniques, an effort which is well documented on this release."
(Richard di Santo, Incursion)
