Favola is part of the project CD project Red Sun recorded together with Malgorzata Walentynowicz. “It’s a fine work of piano sounds guided by some carefully placed glitches, bits of hiss, a processed sine wave and the like. All seven pieces are very careful, atmospheric, perhaps at times moody, all meandering away in a very friendly manner.” “Nice for a rainy day.“ (Vital Weekly 936, Modisti.com)
