VALIS is a beautiful and ravishing work!” - Jules Verne Magazine (Stockholm)

VALIS is an aural wonderland, and one produced by the latest computer-music technologies. It demonstrates that Machover has a real finger on the pulse of American pop and serious culture. Here is a work with fresh, original and exciting ideas about everything from rap to minimalism to serialism.” - 7 Days (New York)
