Pulitzer-nominated LA Times music critic Mark Swed called the first piece “a kind of acoustic acupressure” (Critic’s Notebook, October 12, 2018)

Patricia Alessandrini (Stanford University) called the album “startlingly, starkly beautiful - a unique voice forging a path that invites the listener to follow its powerful internal logic. Original and remarkable.” 

This is the eighth album released by Sideband, which focuses on experimental and improvisation-inclusive music, and whose advisory board includes the Arditti Quartet’s Lucas Fels, the Spektral Quartet’s Clara Lyon, and 2021 Guggenheim Fellow Kathryn Young.
