Diatonis is a rare breed these days, intelligent, ethereal and beautiful music. Soothing and contemplative, but not mindless music. This album and his other music takes you away to different mindscapes. Highly recommended. - Ken Oliver

Watch 'One to Be':
Trajectories is a set of imperfect pieces that achieve rare beauty and true originality because of the imperfections. Diatonis' approach and his own perfectionism allows him to create art from mistakes made by machines that are by design and definition perfect!
Deep listeners, however, will hear no imperfections and no mistakes! Diatonis has crafted a deep soundscape full of pastoral ambience and bright drones. The atmospheres are constantly gathering and releasing sound design elements. They are on a constant crescendo, building towards a denouement that isn't there. The soundscapes evoke imagery of a sunrise over blue skies complete with rainbows, flowers and wispy clouds - total serenity.
It is an allegory for the dawn of man. (Indeed, the entire album is full of references to Richard Strauss's Sunrise, the ultimate cinematic score for new birth or rebirth.) This is a special disc. Thus, it is an important piece of the dawn of e-music's Golden Age. - Jim Brenholts
