"Quietude is as subdued as its name suggests but rewards the attentive listener with detailed, shifting patterns and sparkling textures. It takes the cut-and-paste aesthetic of laptop composers and transforms it into cohesive, near-ambient compositions. The resulting combinations are strikingly pretty, and almost completely avoids dissonance. Looped backgrounds mesh effortlessly with slow-moving melodies. While at times within the glitch idiom, Takuma Itoi's work is decidedly more deliberate and organic than his peers. Lullabies suitable for soothing the space-sickness of newborn cosmonauts: let this be the soundtrack to your stasis chamber too."
