. . . "Infra" stands wonderfully on its own . . . it's with the five-minute "Infra 5" that "Infra" really comes into its own. The climax of the album, although there are three more brief tracks to come after it, here Richter pits his most moving string quartet arrangement against howling electronic dissonance, building to an almost-painful crescendo that's cathartic and harrowing in equal measure . . . By adding just the right amount of static to the sugar of his sweeping arrangements, Richter's created an album that's precisely balanced between accessibility and depth, desolation and joy, melody and noise.

. . . Richter is capable of eliciting profound emotions from the barest of foundations . . .

Richter's soundtrack is an absorbing blend of shortwave-style droning transmissions, beautiful string ensemble pieces and piano compositions . . . "Infra" proves Richter's versatility and searchingly experimental drive as a composer, pitching that ideal balance between ear-bending sounds capes and all-out heartbreak. Highly recommended.

. . . languorously transcendent . . .
