"there is much else that is effectively conceived. james peter moffatt’s soundscape switches from airport sounds to reports of isis bombings and the rattle of gunfire to create aural drama on a static set" - the guardian.
"james peter moffatt’s music and sound design intensifies the mood and atmosphere of an unflinching, unsettling drama" - jewish renaissance.
