Paulo Raposo's wonderful Sirr label is one of the most consistent founts of contemporary electroacoustic minimalism. (boomkat)

The arrangements are never predictable and full of details and subtle movements, which makes the listening experience more rewarding each time I've put this disc in my player. Sounds great; let's keep our eyes and ears peeled. (Richard di Santo, Incursion Music)

Raposo and Santos are playing with our ears, creating comfort zones where there should be none and turning highly familiar places into alien landscapes. Insula Dulcamara is an album of soft sound art. It is gentle on the ear and relatively easy to get into, yet it requires the listener full attention to stay in focus. Become distracted and it fades into the background and turns into an undifferentiated soundscape. Keep your listening eye on the music, scrutinize it and it reveals innumerable hues and shades, tells opaque stories and leaves you with the impression of having lived an enriching peaceful moment. The music is never suggestive enough to be cinematic, which turns out to be the album’s biggest strength. (Francois Couture, All music guide)
