about

“The real achievement of ‘The Geography of Collapsing Structures’ is its ability to be consistently engaging, while being simultaneously challenging, something that, much as I love it, can’t be said about every release in the genre.” – Jack Midalia, Life Is Noise

“Gillies’ manipulations moved between the delicate and the aggressive providing an interplay of dominance and submission. The real moments of beauty came when the piano part was finally able to break free from its accompaniment and manage a few beautifully sparse notes in the upper register before being once again buried in a wash of noise.” – Henry Andersen, Earwax New Music Magazine, Club Zho 96

“‘Rainbow Electronics’ [track 5 from ‘TGOCS’] has a modern classical feel about it mixed with sound-wave decay that wash in and out and compliments the almost percussive piano. It is probably the standout track on the LP as it merges the two styles perfectly to form one style.” – Gavin Catling, Twiceremembered Twiceremoved
