. - - "Jack Wright, a troubadour of jazz freedom for nearly forty years...plays music with intransigency and a belief that there is no middle ground to be had with improvisation... The process is similar to Evan Parker's duos with FURT...Falesch creates these electronic flashes, something out of a sci-fi (sometimes horror) junkyard for Wright to react to. The pair neither smothers each other nor does it require crescendos. Wright's saxophone slays each and every electronic dragon conjured by Falesch" --Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

. - - "...this is by far the most original thing that I've encountered in the realm of "electroacoustic improvisation" over the last six years. Not a dull moment." --Evan Lipson, public FB posting

Earlier reviews of a previous release ("Clang") by Wright and Falesch...

. - - "Wright and Falesch's freewheeling interplay is wildly passionate, nuanced and brainy" --Splendid Zine

. - - "...the sort of British-style meeting in which experienced and technically advanced players listen carefully to each other and harness considerable resources to produce something of lasting value...a rewarding excursion that features two major talents in prime form" --AllMusic
