Review excerpts:

(...) kompositionerne er baseret fortrinsvis på gamle testplader. Altså den slags som gør brug af forskellige lyde såsom støj eller sinustoner til at indstille lydanlægget med. TEST er en sært hypnotisk plade. En nøgtern afsøgning af uventet skønhed. Poesien i brugslyde bliver afdækket. En fornemmelse af logik og matematik, der bliver til kunst.
Ralf Christensen, Dagbladet Information

Test succeeded!
