“Bissonnette’s mastery of his material is everywhere in evidence.” Dusted
“Bissonnette works on an introspective level, building pellucid arrangements that suspend you, breathless, in a perpetually meditative state.” Earplug
“Periphery should become the new benchmark of how to disassemble, reorganize, and completely reshape organic & commonplace sound into a beautiful and absorbing piece of music.” Foxy Digitalis
“It’s hard to know quite how to describe these utterly majestic micro symphonies. ‘Periphery’ is a florid gem of a record that deserves to be centre of attention. Marvellous.” Boomkat
“It’s somewhere between a ritual and a gallery showing, if not both.” The Quietus
“This is a record that oddly demands your attention, only to demand that you relax once you have given it.” Future Sequence
“The music is experimental, with the focus on chance, risk and error creating a beautifully natural, organic sound. Itʼs a stunning album, its snaking lines of synth radiating with inner warmth, its prism reflecting a thousand sharp colours.” Fluid Radio
