about

"There’s beauty in this noise: an elegant, contrary beauty, the type often noticed by those who cherish the discarded and overlooked. To love what others consider unlovable is a rare gift; to present it to others in such a way as to gain their appreciation is even rarer, and that’s exactly what the artist manages to accomplish here."
– Richard Allen, A Closer Listen (Music For Computers EP)

"Gillies produces a wide range of sounds and feels that occasionally break into brilliance ... There’s a language at play here that is distant and hard to unpick, but offers strangely satisfying rewards if you’re persistent about it, like thumbing through a novel written in Cyrillic."
– Alex Griffin, Life Is Noise (Music For Computers EP)
