About:
“What do I hear in his pieces? Attack after attack. At the same time, though, in a musical sense, I also hear bittersweet chords built upon combined thirds, sounding Western-European or I might even say Northern: trembling, rolling, wandering or sweeping masses of sound. Listening through it we feel as though we are being pushed around by forces beyond human imagination.”
