"Combining edited tapes of found sounds with digital noise, percussion and slight, angular jazzy moods, Fernandes conjures up a world caught between the old and the new, the magic and the logic, the organic and the electronic."
- Stein Haukland, Ink 19 (US)

"East and West meet, not in a clashing way, but in a very enjoined, compatible form. The music has rhythm throughout and respectfully pays homage to multiple cultures."
- Frank Rubolino, One Final Note (US)
