"...sings out and stays in my head long after I’m done listening...Marvelous work." - Paul Simpson, The Answer Is In The Beat, WCBN 88.3FM in Ann Arbor MI

"From the beginning to the end of the album, the abstract tone flies around the left and right of the speaker (or headphones) with a metallic reverberation, and the mysterious listening experience that penetrates the cranial nerves so that the deeply reverberated striking sound melts is an installation It's similar to. It's like meditation music reminiscent of Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze, ambient music / ambient music, field recording, but essentially an improvisational document of a live instrument." - Takeshi Goda, Jazz Tokyo

"I automatically think of rusty fences and a secret torture chamber in the basement, and the added electronics have that 'howl around the house...Hiaraoka knows how to add a human touch to the music, varying from a soft touch (or rub perhaps), to a more introspective and then a louder ringing/sustaining sound. I have no idea if this is 'live' or perhaps in some ways the result of layering and editing, but it doesn't, the result is beautiful. " - FdW Vital Weekly

"This album’s cuts are minimal, repetitve, and shimmering that result in a very pleasant and soothing sound. The metallic and echoing tracks are very mysterious." - Cousin Mary KFJC FM 89.7
