Visible Cloaks’ Reassemblage is a collection of delicately rendered passages of silence and sound that invokes – and invites - consciousness. The foundation of the duo's second album could be described as translingual or polyglottal, working within an eastern / western feedback loop of influence, Fourth World ambiguity, and the universality of human emotion. – Bandcamp

“Its serene new age moods and bright synthetic palette suggest a strong primary influence: the Japanese leftfield synth scene of which Koda was a part, celebrated on the influential Fairlights, Mallets and Bamboo mixes recorded by Visible Cloaks' Spencer Doran. But the duo don't simply mimic the style, nor fetishise it as exotic. Instead, they "speak nearby" it, using "chance operations, MIDI 'translation,' and other generative principles" to refract it into modern shapes.” – Resident Advisor

“Visible Cloaks specialize in blurring boundaries, as they collapse organic sounds into precisely machined new shapes. “Mask” works from a palette closest to those Root Strata mixes, as gamelan bowls, bird calls, and vocodered hums are stretched and processed like a Fennesz track. “Terrazzo” has Doran and Carlile team up with Motion Graphics’ Joe Williams, taking his flute and elongating it until it more closely resembles a shakuhachi bamboo version. Around this timbre, the duo stir a marsh of small blips, twinkling crystals, and koto strings, a strange sensation of natural ambience and glitching electronics blending into an alien landscape.” – Pitchfork
