About ---------------------- Strangeness is Gratitude
"Highlights include Wanderers, the fragile Frissonneur de nuit and the grieving, haunted growls of Désir. Lest we forget, the final instants of Hymne, where Ida’s anthem concludes our travel, brings us, humble sound explorers, a bit closer to the stars."

"L’écoute de l’auditeur se contorsionne autour de ce fin tissu pour en admirer les différents plis, et ce spectre lumineux se déploie si lentement dans l’espace qu’on le regarde passer et voler au loin avant de s’éteindre dans le silence obscur."

""I imagine Toninato listening to the sound draining from the walls, like someone throwing a stone into a river and then quietly examining the intricacies of the splash. It’s a beautiful process of call and cryptic response."

"A Baritone Saxophone player with an ear for the avant garde, Toninato has put together something really beautiful that grabs your attention from the beginning and truly transports its observer to another dimension. Minimalism is the root of it all but Toninato’s music just has a presence about it. Really powerful stuff."

"Ida Toninato begins here premier album on Kohlenstoff Records with am eerie Baritone saxophone drone piece that drips with maturity. Wanderers is a perfect overview of Toninato’s knack for capturing her observer."

About ------------------------------- The Space Between Us
"The whole album is solid and with a clear central vision on their music: coherent, beautifully performed and with a unique sound." ****
"A very inspired and moving meeting by these two musicians and their instruments."
"The Space Between Us serves as a high point of that year’s recordings, and provides some superb listening."
"Although the CD is titled The Space Between Us, the profound musical connection established by Thiessen and Toninato confirms that this gap is minimal at best."
