“Surprisingly magnetic meditations on time . . . vital and compulsive . . . firmly rooted both in the distant past and music much closer to the present.”

Pitchfork (read the full review)

 “Cooper controls the unfolding of musical elements so naturally that these gargantuan tracks work to pull my attention through every moment, resulting in a kind of concentration that feels similar to guided meditation . . . A beautiful way to look at sky when sky is not available.”

San Francisco Classical Voice (read the full review)

  “Cooper still knows how to write a drop-dead beautiful, subtle melody that complements and caresses a singer’s voice, and how to manipulate the sounds his singers produce subtly, to beguiling effect . . . Gentle, tender, and entirely compelling”
