    Ambient music since its inception was about overlapping voices and how it effects perception: two, three voices are one sustained tone across and infinite period of time, where interactions intersect and combust. Visa exploits this to brilliant ends.

    Visa finds Ripatti attuned to a very specific, focused energy, and the result is some of his best work.

    In Visa, Ripatti has constructed an album evocative of one extremely specific place--and it’s a place which couldn’t have been accessed by anybody but him.

    An eerily rootless modern drift through the electronic depths of Tarkovsky's Zone. [Feb 2015, p.96]

    It's the most vibrant and vital he's sounded in a long while. [Nov 2014, p.64]

    This lush hybrid of electronica, jazz and modern classical forms is one of the most beautiful accidents in Ripatti's long and prolific career. [Feb 2015, p.84]
