>fertile imagination."
>JAMES HARLEY, Computer Music Journal 28:1 (Spring 2004)

>"...both humorous and disturbing at once, a gripping combinationŠ As
>soon as the 45-minute masterpiece that is ULTIMATUM begins to
>unfold, the listener is transported into a sonic world that could
>come from another galaxy.
>Superbly crafted and incredibly inventive..."
>ANDREW McFARLANE, BBCi Music (Summer 2003)

>"...their own extended and uniquely evolved form of that post-war
>inventiveness..."
