A very kind review of Sound of the Mountain's "amplified clarinet and trumpet" from Frans de Waard at Vital Weekly:

"The title of the release the duo Sound Of The Mountain says it all; this is music for amplified clarinet and trumpet. The players are Elizabeth Millar (amplified clarinet) and Craig Pedersen (amplified trumpet). They are from Montreal I believe and recorded their music at Hotel2Tango. ...the sound of their instruments, and I mean the way they are ‘properly’
p...layed is barely recognizable in this. The microphones are very close to the mouths of the players, so we hear them breathing, sighing and vocalizing, but all of this in a very minimal way. Pauline OIiveros, Keiji Haino, Toshimaru Nakamura, Isabelle Duthoit and Franz Hautzinger inspire them, and especially with the latter I see a connection here. Sound Of The Mountain is very much interested in exploring the small tones possible, turn them inside out and upside down and create five very dense patterns of sound. This is perhaps all improvised music, based on the amplification of two wind instruments, but also, very much this is a work of microsound. Should you be without any information and listening to this music, you could easily believe this is some electro-acoustic music; maybe of objects pushed around on a carpet, but then heavily amplified; very soft in volume but very powerful at the same time. This is some fascinating stuff. Kobi and Müller may be on a trajectory away from the instruments, Millar and Pedersen certainly have left them behind and explore a new terrain and came up with a
brilliant release."
