Hardey McMurrick Upon listening one is taken into a world of raw electronic minimalism and classical experimental piano sounds but just when you are on the edge of feeling that this is an an album for listeners with specific ear for stripped back repetition these uniques sounds drop into funked up house creating a constantly surprising array of sounds; so well done, a really fresh original sound

Andrew Dubber If John Cage made house music... or, I dunno... if Frankie Knuckles played prepared piano. Something. Favorite track: Terrarium I.

Thomas Studdy Twisted funk with a melancholic edge to it. This is pretty badass.

Peter Uvin I have only these three songs to go by, but this is absolutely amazing--the blend of electronic and acoustic, old innovations and new rhythms. Jefferson is amazing, but all tracks so far are very good! Favorite track: Jefferson.

    Debut from Brooklyn DJ/producer Pocketknife (Tambourine Dream, Flagrant Fowl) working under his new moniker Boonlorm. An eleven track album featuring “piano not piano” house music created solely with a prepared piano and raw drum programming that pays
    homage to Chicago, Detroit, and the 20th century avant-garde.
    String Figures is “screw music” in the most literal sense with direct ties to the late composer John Cage who created the first prepared piano pieces by inserting objects into the strings of a grand piano. The sound that resonates is a rich combination of tonal, atonal and percussive timbres. String Figures buzzes, vibrates, and jacks all at once.
    This digital and CD edition contains six remastered tracks that appeared on a limited vinyl that came out in 2012, with 4 additional tracks from the same sessions, as well as a bonus track called "Hairdo Gone" which is
    an homage to Lil Louis' "Video Clash."
