"The work was a study in auditory illusion as he merged both acoustic and electronic/pre-recorded sounds. This interesting orchestration, doubling pre-recorded sounds with live instruments, created a sonic illusion in the sense that the instruments almost sounded electronic. The brilliant blend of timbres—a sound that was probably more suited to be heard than described—used very unconventional textures that formed a tonal and rhythmic minimalist structure."
Daniel Garrick, I Care if You Listen,27/03/2014
"Part of his gift is alchemical, combining instruments – both acoustic and electronic – to create new and wondrous sounds. The end result is beguiling and seductive…there is real melodic and compositional development in Holographic and I’m sure it will reveal even more delights upon further listening."
Jeremy Shatan, An Earful,16/03/2014
