"Lee Gallanter"

...Tim does a fine job carefully sculpting sounds so that everything flows together into an endless river of swirling currents. What sounds like snippets of mellotron, seventies synth sequencers, occasional electronic drum beats - all swim together into a charming, yet sublime soundscape or dreamworld. Somewhere between early Tangerine Dream and Eno's ambient superb sonic web is this gem. I turned on the visualizer in my iTunes program on my Mac and let myself be carried away. The sounds and kaleidoscopic images fit perfectly, rather psychedelic without any drugs involved. This is some of the best, most hypnotic and most eerily soothing electronic music I've heard in quite some time. - Downtown Music Gallery (November 2009 NYC)

"Mark S. Tucker (FAME Magazine)"

Listening to Chikatetsu isn't merely a musical activity but an experience. The palpability of movement and environment are consuming without being threatening; there is, in other words, none of John Foxx's marvelously ominous coldwave dystopianism but rather the Vangelistic success of technology and mind over entropy, as in the extremely friendly and enticing Kitto Ne, an Ibiza extension. With all the doom and gloom currently invading every aspect of our lives otherwise, this disc is a vacation to our better nature... - (FAME Magazine)

"Review of The Butterfly Effect"

The Butterfly Effect is a mixture of instrumentals and songs written with a laid back attitude utilising the most modern of musical techniques to add vibrancy to these dozen tracks. The title deserves to be played over and over again as it manages to combine uplifting themes and pleasant melodies into a piece where the acoustic guitar shines though. The spoken words serve to heighten the effects. The striking chords are fantastic when heard and these make it so engrossing that it compels to be heard again. I won't give the full title to the third track as it provides the geographical position of the type of cloud, but Cumulonimbus is a very ambient piece with gently pulsating layered textures that drag the listener towards the towering majesty of it all. The unusual percussion on Little Walk: Biota adds intrigue as the jungle sounds in the distant provides a great backdrop for the mesmerising mellowed riffs to develop on this long track. The slow moving and hypnotic Water is perfectly suited to late night headphone listening. You may have already gathered that there is quite a variety on this album with no two tracks following in similar footsteps. One of the guest musicians Serwan Yamolky plays the oud (a stringed instrument) throughout Nothing Useless In The Sidereal Immensity and this solo instrumental is an unusual inclusion. Things return to normality for the last song Stream Of Consciousness with a proper drumbeat, bewitching synth notes and guitar passages of beauty. The eight minutes pass so quickly and it's a grand way to conclude an excellent CD. - Modern Dance
