REVIEWS:

“Very cool project by half of the prolific and overly talented Italian duo My Cat Is An Alien. This is a composirtion based on the book that contains it. The book has a sequence detailing acool abstract suite of visual art, and the music is a tape piece sourced from the sounds of the book being assembled. Stapling, folding, stamping, etc, are all worked into a percussive sluice of sound that is pretty damn captivating."
- Byron Coley / THE WIRE
