"There are four pieces here, each of which is an exercise in polytonal inquiry or microtonal extrapolation. These four exercises are sound-on-sound explorations that come through a brief series of melodic ideas and are turned inside out to reflect the timbral essence of each note being played to construct them. McPhee draws many of these exercises in these pieces back to a blues or groove framework, evoking ghosts of heroes long since passed and seldom acknowledged by the rest of this hyper-literate mob. - Thom Jurek, All Music Guide"
