PRESS ABOUT CHORD FROM THE SECOND DELPHIC HYMN:
"Staggering… one of the records of the year"
- Shame File Music
"Chord from the Second Delphic Hymn shimmers and undulates clangorously like some freshly awakened metallic beast… the keyboard and guitar textures chime like an orchestra of dulcimers… controlled thunder… a kind of inner euphoria… the result both a mutating organism and volcanic forcefield"
"Joyous sensory over-stimulation… a kind of blissful, obliterated exhaustion… the music is, quite simply, a head-fucking blast to listen to and swim through"
- Jon Dale
PRESS ABOUT EXCAVATION PATTERNS:
"Notes fall to the ground like careful snowflakes… on a slow drift into the night"
- Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
"Carpenter wants to evoke a specific response in the listener, an experience of Sound (the capital is deliberate)—sound in and of itself, independent of cultural conditioning, sound as experienced by the child who does not yet know what 'sound' is… If it must be concluded that Carpenter's project contains contradictions, that is exactly what makes it so interesting."
- Stephen Whittington, RealTime
"The motion of the visuals and the might of the music fuse into one coherent artistic and—in a way—philosophical, hands-on experience… hypnotically pulling my eyes together at the nose-tip, lifting my sense of perception and conscience like a kitten is lifted by his neck, blasting these immense universal plains in front of me, inside me, rippling with plasma energy and forceful peace."
- Ingvar Loco Nordin, Sonoloco Record Reviews
"…an important contribution to Melbourne sound culture…"
- Jonathan Marshall, RealTime
