REVIEWS:

"Amazing package in this new series of releases by the great MCIAA. This fraternal Italian duo are best known for creating long cosmic tones on homemade instruments, but their discography is vast and includes all sorts of amazing clatter. Visually, the book in which this CD is enclosed is a bound set of pages that have been wrinkled before binding, in a manner that really makes them look great. And the music is very fine - against a modulating and buzzy sustained tone, a series of clattery and gobbly events take place, effectively sucking the air out of any room you happen to be inhabiting."
- Byron Coley / THE WIRE
