    Schneider TM invites the listener to project their own meanings and sense on these intrusive sounds made beautiful.

    He decided to record the constant cacophony of construction in his Prenzlauer Berg district, reassembling the treated drilling and grinding into haunting ambient pieces. [Dec 2012, p.76]

    By and large Construction Sounds is a restful and refreshing listen--and one that reflects how far his music has come during the years since he last used the Schneider TM moniker.

    There's a feeling of disconnect between idea and result, with Construction Sounds tending towards solid but unremarkable investigation of texture. [Nov 2012, p.72]

    Construction Sounds is interesting, emotional stuff, in spite of the fact that it is addressing themes and concepts that have been ruminated over many times before.
