 Barbier’s singleminded achievement manages to subvert the stuffy academia of classical    constructs; in the end, an almost liturgical new form of post-modern chamber music is      birthed.                                                                                         -Darren Bergstein, Downtown Music Gallery

                                                   -Peter Margasak, Bandcamp Daily

"explores the nooks of instrumental tone far beyond the reach of most mortals"

      "ominously rattling slabs of granite or something more akin to power tools gone wild."

                                                                - Byron Coley, The Wire

 "magnificently abrasive"

                                                             - Alex Ross, The Rest Is Noise
