'Here, quite elaborate live electronics are used to explore such spectra, as that between pizzicato, tapping the instrument and the juddering sound of bowing very heavily or between cantabile line and almost literal simulation of the human voice.  It remains a solo cello piece, however, the fantastic landscapes around the cello being reflections or projections of it.'
International Record Review (Michael Olivier), September 2002

'… Advaya pour violoncelle, clavier et électronique sʹéloigne de tout pittoresque par la construction d'une sorte d'échelle de pureté spectrale, voulue comme un correspondant dans le monde de la resonance des hierarchies de l'ancien système.'
Le Monde de la Musique (Costan Cazaban), November 2001

'Abrasive, gritty but eventful, this compelling piece combines the exploration of pure sound with high drama, running from quiet scratchings to loud whizzings across a cavernous sound-stage.'
Classic CD (Andy Hamilton) September 1999

'… the interplay between cello and the extra electronic voices and sounds are sensationally effective, and sometimes build massive climaxes on a near-orchestral scale. It made a unique experience, one that seized the imagination by main force. Harvey's wild ingenuity left us awestricken.'
Financial Times (David Murray), 22 November 1994
