"This Lucier-like transformation was in a word, fascinating. Things start happening fairly quickly on this 39 minute release. About 5 minutes in, and without hardly realizing it, the benign taped fragment metamorphosed into a rolling cascade of human voices.

"the method of composition is also similar to the famous sound experiment 'i am sitting in a room' by alvin lucier. very cool. 'witnessing' begins with the chatter of clear voices. by the end of the recording, it is a storm of abstract, looped noise."
