”Almost all of the musicians I meet at the moment seem to regard Jon Hassell as one of the God-like geniuses of contemporary music.” —David Toop, The Wire

“Work of quite extraordinary beauty... This pan-cultural music swirls and rises like smoke... Hassell blends his experiences in such a way that the components—African drumming, Indian microtonality, Balinese tranquility-make a new palette while forfeiting none of the individual colors.” —LONDON TIMES

“Extraordinary, otherworldly music...” —ROLLING STONE
