"...the shared patience, the way you listen to each other, the climate of purposeful resonance in which relatively small gestures come to read as heartbreaking melodic twists and turns..." Carlo Rotella

 

"Holy fuck! That was the best concert I've seen in three years!", Harris, audience member in Louisville, KY at Flamingo Lounge, with Dane Waters (solo and collaboration) 2021

 

"They play through layers of effects and post-processing, closely matching each other not just timbrally,

but in movement and form as well, to the point where it can sound like a complex generative patch in a

synthesizer rather than two disparate instruments being played by live human beings. A live video reveals

why they don’t try to skip the middleman and go full Autechre with a copy of Max/MSP: the instruments

they have chosen allow them to improvise with graceful, gestural movements, allowing them to embody

and control their music in stunningly subtle ways. On record this relationship between instrument and

performer, which seems so key to their entire artistic project, is almost completely illegible. Instead we are

left with sound so pure and uninflected it can appear empty at first glance. It’s really excellent ambient

music that sounds like it could have come out anytime in the last few decades—no mean feat for a genre

that's so closely bound up with advances in musical technology." —Samuel McLemore/Tone Glow

"It occurred to me, listening to their work, that it represented a “Guide to Good Drone Music”:

– It changes;
– It isn’t pushy, but it pulls you along;
– It isn’t showy, but it shows you things;
– It surprises;
– The edges meet but don’t crowd the middle;
– It creates mental and temporal space for the listener.

Atlanta is really lucky to have this duo, and that they continue,

year-after-year, to plumb their craft." - Jon Ciliberto

"Undulating soundscapes rise and fall, reaching slowly swelling crescendos of sensory overload, drifting in a balance of beauty and tension. Their shared instincts create an invisible structure that transcends more traditional drone music to achieve its own rhythm and tonal logic." - Chad Radford

"Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel dream up clouds, aurora, sunspots, storm-fronts. They make weather

overhead. Listening to compositions like these - music these musicians made up, in studio, somewhere far

away - I am struck by what a gift they have. Not just that they can make weather, summon it from nothing,

but that they can bottle it - like springwater, or earth. Sending spring or summer up from Georgia,

to where we shiver in the cold.' Sean Michaels, Said the Gramophone

"These sounds are the product of two minds sharing a single headspace and letting the music drive...
Here, they collide with the cerebellum in a graceful, slow-motion crash." Creative Loafing Atlanta

"The music on this cd is a mesmerizing, smooth sound that will fuck you up in any possible way you

a treat to listen to." Dillholio, on emusic

Bravo! “   Joey Bargsten
