"Remarkable" "A strange, gripping experience"-Bachtrack
"Meditative and introverted…a collective experiment in listening"-The Boston Musical Intelligencer
"One of the strangest pieces I have ever seen [and] one of the strongest compositions of either night. In a way that is hard to describe, the piece has some kind of poetic truth that nails part of the experience of a living thing trying to stay alive."-Feast of Music at the MATA Festival
"[His music] is not only interested in finding the breaking point or the limit but is also intrigued and attracted by what lies on the other side"-Tim Rutherford-Johnson in his book 'Music After the Fall'
"[The piece] directs its performers into a conducted sociality marked by phantom-like breathed, muffled and whispered sounds and silences. Sdraulig's comes closest out of all of these pieces to Dunn's notion of the "organisation of perception", where performer becomes listener and listener becomes performer and music, as a result, becomes not-itself"-the Quietus
