    Hampson has a discerning ear for when and how to place sounds to best offset each other. [Aug 2012, p.73]

    The tactile crackle and hiss underscoring the calm piano makes this all Hampson's work, as excellent and remarkable as always.

    Call it detached, call it obtuse, call it aloof, but R├ępercussions oddly gives the listener the idea that Robert Hampson is currently in a content place.

    R├ępercussions exists in a completely different universe, far removed from rock tropes, and sits comfortably within the spectrum of modern electro-acoustic and minimal composition.
