"A dreamworld of sounds materialising and dematerialising." Sydney Morning Herald
New York City Jazz Record Honourable Mention in 'The Best of 2011'
Sydney Morning Herald* * * * John Shand 12th February 2012
"The new project from Melbournian trumpeter-composer Peter Knight blurs any horizon between composition and improvisation. It is not just method that is obscured - the music itself is a dream-world of sounds materialising and dematerialising. Identifiable instruments such as Adam Simmons's bass clairnet, Frank DiSario's double bass and Joe Talia's drums are surrounded and cushioned by more surreal options emanating from Knight's laptop, Eirk Griswold's prepared piano, Vanessa Tomlinson's tiny percussion sounds and beautiful flashes of Knight's trumpet."
Extempore Arjun von Caemmerer
"While the wash & wake of the laptop’s sounds (today’s ‘machine music’?), are uniquely their own, the hum, buzz, & electric crackle coalesce at times into the sounds of the everyday — on the title track alone these variously evoke the pregnant static of a gramophone speaker, continuing when the record ends; the calls of frog & cricket, cat & bird; airplane & train; far-off thunder; breath & rain."
The Australian John McBeath
"Melbourne trumpeter-composer Peter Knight, after successful recordings of his jazz-world music group Way Out West, has recently re-positioned his talents in far more abstract directions. Following the release of Residual, a duo album featuring Knight's trumpet, various Vietnamese instruments and electronica, comes his latest work for six musicians: part structured, part improvised sonic experimentation."
Jazz Australia Brad Syke
"Knight is unafraid of silences; negative space; darkness. This track swells and subsides, as surely as the pulsating tide. It's lunar as, and very, very Miles, in an ambient, world music kinda way. It ducks and weaves; hides 'round corners. Now you hear it. Now you don't. It's a ghostly presence; an aural apparition."
