Reviews:

Tammen´s incredible 22 Minutes on Bowed & Popped might be the listening equivalent of a lethal injection for a number of my colleagues, but it makes me want to start a nonprofit corporation solely for the commissioning of a work for fingernails and chalkboard. (Bananafish 2000)

Experimental Sound Production adalah dasar dari produk-produk musik dari NurNichtNur. Pada dua CD yang berisi komposisi dari beberapa artis musisinya ini kita akan mendengarkan ekperimen musikal pencarian sound-sound baru dari alat-alat yang bisa memproduksi suara, baik itu alat musik yang lazim seperti trombone, gitar, perkusi atau keyboard maupun alat-alat musik yang tidak lazim rancangan mereka sendiri yang dibuat dari media styrofoam, bambu dan logam, juga mereka mengunakan sound-sound yang dapat dihasilkan dengan alat elektronik seperti komputer. musiknya bervariasi dari free jazz sampai free improvisation dan memang konsep mereka banyak diilhami juga dari komposer modern music Harry Partch. (Wartajazz, Indonesia, 2001)
