'Unapologetically strange and jarring...a captivating and enigmatic soundscape of obscure lounge music that will set your five senses alight.'
(Brandon Minia, 24OurMusic)
'...[A] restless compositional philosophy that will not resonate with listeners expecting concise, neatly packaged musical content.'
(Evan Crandell, 24OurMusic)
'...[C]ontemporary music for the bizarre at heart. Featuring both conventional and atypical instrumentation and composition techniques, [his] electronica and classical works operate in a style unlike any other. Songs present everything from momentous, Philip Glass-like sweeps to old-school MIDI music and Baroque-era voice leading and structure. For J.M. Smig, anything goes!'
