REVIEWS

The music seeps into your room, through the keyhole and around the door jam, like smoke from a smoldering concept or mist from a descending idea.Chuck van Zyl, Star’s End Ambient Radio

The soundscapes are vast and expansive.  The sound design is murky (in the good sense) and ethereal.  Kit’s soundworlds conjure images of clouds and threats of doom and disaster.  They are only threats.  While the dark overtones are predominant, the melody creates an undercurrent of light and hope.Jim Brenholts, Ambient Visions

I’ve seen ghosts gently shaking their etheral skirts, to the sound of bells and wine glasses with fingers, coyly surfacing over the top, circular--making a momentous feedback. Time can pass slow in this world, and listening to Rolling Curve it moves slower--and that’s not a bad thing: it gives you time to identify and investigate things in a different order, with a different eye . . . —d.
