“Every in and out breath and every suggestion of a note here is a point of interest, surrounded by lots and lots of silence. Cater's approach to these impressionistic-narrative folk songs is similar to artists of the ECM label: with almost religiously devoted, sensitive, explorations and improvisations. His influences appear to be drawn from jazz and contemporary classical circles. This album emphasises Cater's solo work, carefully complemented with guest contributions from various Berlin musicians. The sacred, highly minimalist atmosphere of the music and the unusual sound of the concertina immerse the listener in a timeless, almost unreal atmosphere. Cater uses his voice more in a storytelling mode than as an all out singer, and a bit more freedom for the guest musicians could add a dash of light here and there. But the listener who surrenders and allows every note to be heard will be ultimately breathless and deeply touched.” Benjamin van Vliet - Gonzo (circus)

“TTTYCH delivers an idiosyncratic amalgam of minimal music, drone, folk, lo-fi and experimental music. As if Pauline Oliveros, Colin Stetson, Arthur Russell, Philip Glass and Smog started jamming. A unique, intense and extraordinarily beautiful experience. You do not even need to hear three things to be completely won over by this authentic magnificent work.” Jan Willem Broek - Subjectivisten

"The loveliest thing about the record is Cater’s penchant for sudden melodic clarity: he foresees a quick massage of real song amidst a kind of ambient stillness, and suddenly his vocal will meet a quick flourish, or an oscillating instrument. Songs that wake up, quite accidentally, onto their own magic. ‘The Three Things You Can Hear’ is gorgeous and weird, and it feels like an accident happening on purpose." Norman Records
