"From one of music's extraordinary visionaries comes a breathtaking masterpiece. Deep atmosphere and technical skill rarely come in the same package. Ben Kuzay has created a majestic painting on a canvas of silence. Art for the sake of art- expression emanating from the depths of the human soul. Through introversion, introspection, and pain-staking solitary contemplation, Kuzay has created an album that will move every person it touches. A wide range of moods and musical genres are present on this album: ambiance, gothic splendor, dreamy soundscapes, love, hate, pain, fear, joy, togetherness and desolation all come to life through the tips of his fingers. Expressing the entire spectrum of emotions, no spiritual leaf has been left unturned. Have you ever wondered what the black shine of a soul looks like? If you close your eyes and listen, you will see it. Beyond Black Mirrors will take you to a place you've never been, but have always longed to be."

"To the superficial and the guilty it is more comfortable to to bathe in the shallow pool of Macklemore than in the delirious depths of Ben Kuzay."

"You kick ass on bass- I don't play nearly as well as you.............Love "WAVES". I sound like such a wimp on bass after hearing you play! Keep up the great work!"

"I've been listening to Ben Kuzay's newest album today "Beyond Black Mirrors" and want to recommend it to everyone who's a fan of dark, ambient and instrumental styles of music. I personally think it's his best work to date and demonstrates how much more can be done with what is largely an under-appreciated instrument."
