“This unusual Norwegian trio is doing interesting work off the beaten track. The unusual begins with the instrumentation …and display considerable technical depth and breadth, as well as strong ensemble identity.” Julian Cowley, The Wire

“Poings renommé som et av Nordens ledende ensembler innenfor samtidsmusikk står ved lag med denne innspillingen. De musikalske båsene er borte og det ferdige reultatet viser tre musikere som til de grader presenterer nyskapende musikk, signert noen av dagens mest markante komponister, på en fremragende måte.” Tron Erikson, Smaalenenes Avis
