descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In Distel's "Railnotes", we can never be sure where we cross the threshold between the "real" sound world and the sonic realms of illusion and imagination. We can never be sure indeed, for this threshold is not defined, it's undefinable and merely a matter of our own perception, our own imagination. If there is a lesson to be learned from these distinctly non-pedagogical two audio pieces, this might be it."-Peter Niklas Wilson
