“Crystalline piano, clocks, voices, birdsong, water and resonating electronics create a spring-warm sense of place and wonder” MOJO Magazine
“Blending dreamily ambient keyboard melodies with environmental evocations…it offers an attractive distillation of the installation experience. A marker too of rising levels of engagement with auditory histiography in public art” THE WIRE

“Without a shadow of a doubt, Concrete Antenna is one of our records of the year” CAUGHT BY THE RIVER
“This combination of artistic packaging, informative essay and evocative recording is a credit to all of the people involved, from musicians to designers. Even without the visuals, the music impresses; “Church Bells” is especially lovely. “ A CLOSER LISTEN
