    Field recordings and ghostly cello further underline "Ghosts of Blaker Dyke"'s poignancy, recalling David Sylvian's instrumentals on Gone To Earth. [Mar 2020, p.29]

    Black Sarabande’s calm surface proves illusory the more listens you give it.

    His latest is an unhurried flow of ambient piano pieces that, despite the implications of the title, are only momentarily dark and far from risqué, perhaps at times more suited for those soft intimate moments made for two, or most certainly personal reflections made for one.

    Musically the project is weighed down by Haigh’s hugely uninteresting and one-dimensional piano playing. ... Haigh’s ear for electronic texture does do some of the heavy lifting for which his piano playing is not equipped. [Feb 2020, p.47]
