"...voices, gamelan, and computer-generated tones joined in a haunting, nocturnal reverie: unearthly, far beyond the reaches of harmonic or tuning systems." -- Alan Rich, LA Weekly

"pinging, quasi-gamelan tones and radiating linear patterns on screen with artful logic." -- LA Times

"...electronically refracted music of the spheres...with themes and rhythms of a decidedly American thrust." -- Pasadena Star-News

The iotaCenter is proud to release this disc representing some of the most brilliant achievements ever devised in computer based animation.
