„... Wissel not only carries an impressive cargo of once exotic techniques, he also steers an assured and efficient course. Overtones and multiphonics are incorporated as the stuff of the music rather than tacked on as arbitrary embellishments. It all makes sense and is the right length enough to hold the imagination without draining it.“ Julian Cowley, THE WIRE, about “the Arte of Navigation” CD
