Reviews:

"Stasis Ecstatic is an exemplary collection of pieces illustrating the sheer limits of sound, and the rewards that can be reaped by those with the requisite patience and open-mindedness required from such exploratory approaches to sound." Adam Trainer, RTR FM.

"a testament to the organic and cohesive dialogue made possible through the core ensemble’s conversant musicianship". Daniel Blinkhorn, Music Trust.

"They sit comfortably alongside similarly subdued music production from the post-Cage generation, from Japanese onkyo improvisers to the Wandelweisser Collective, while having an approach and voice very much their own. Highly recommended" Joshua Meggit, Cyclic Defrost.
