“With time after time surprising resourcefulness of his way to prepare and produce tones, small melodies and sounds on his electric guitar using various objects and effects. And never falling short of them.” Politiken (DK)
“A Pesonen has everything – can create a dense fabric backgrounds with the instrument and sound transducers using them – that I do not know but I think the effects – in a completely unique way. He can play solo, he can discipline partners and direct the musical narrative in completely new areas.” Multikulti Project (PL)
