  • "Malfliet effectively moves in and out of dissonance, improvisation and fragmented melodies never leaving the continuity far behind. But this is not a collection for those who need to arrive at a specific destination; it is one for those who appreciate the new and strange discoveries along the way." - Karl Ackerman for All About Jazz  about Malfliet's release Noumenon
  • "It is music that has the aspiration to have silence and emptiness filled with  great sense. On a compositional level, this is a remarkable album.” - Philippe Van De Cleen for Written In Music on Noumenon

"This music is a single-minded immersion into the sound of each instrument of the ensemble, including those which remain silent. The sound is the sum of what is being played and the breathing, vibrating presence of those who stay ‘at the edge of darkness’, as Sciarrino would say.

This is austere music, but very hedonistic nonetheless, with a granular surface and occasional hints of a Scelsian drive, and is beautifully recorded. 
Never giving in to predictable behaviors or obvious arches, the ensemble illustrates each individual gesture in its transformation into a collective action. Not your typical ‘trombones will be trombones’ kind of record."
-Giacomo Merega,     electric bassist and composer
