  1. The Wire
    Dec 8, 2022
    Tyondai Braxton’s own Telekinesis is a symphonic work that sounds like a lost sci-fi film soundtrack. It has the clustered, hovering awe of György Ligeti’s Atmosphères and the eerie arpeggiated angles of Herrmann soundtracks like Vertigo and The Day The Earth Stood Still. [Dec 2022, p.50]
  2. Dec 8, 2022
    Its exceptional use of Radio Serial-like synth wobbles and pulses paint a vivid vision of mind-bending power and the destruction left in its wake; amplified by gorgeously dramatic bursts of symphony and chorus. A real gem.
  3. Uncut
    Dec 8, 2022
    It feels like a meeting of worlds. [Feb 2023, p.25]
  4. Dec 8, 2022
    An envelope-pushing record, admirable in its ambition even when the thread gets a bit lost.
