"The net effect can be pleasingly psychedelic, but because VR is so immersive, it can also be more than that: it's not a bad approximation of a state of intense samadhi, such as in Theravadan jhana meditation or complex Tibetan visualization practices."

"While you are in SoundSelf, you dwell in a place which isn't sleep and isn't wakefulness. A level of consciousness wraps you which is both extraordinary, and utterly normal. SoundSelf might be the ground floor of an Oculus-biofeedback field to be, or simply an aid to a meditative practice already established."
- Jason Rhode, PASTE
"The game induced a beautiful and seamless trance that made me forgot that I was in virtual reality [...] The only other way to try and describe SoundSelf is by comparing it to a synaesthetic experience, where sight, sound, and other sensations blur into one."
- DJ Pangburn, VICE
"I saw, for just one moment, the glimmering shadow of God."
- Jared Rosen, Indie Statik
"It's hard to describe the intensity of the experience [...] Absolutely sublime."
- Chris Person, Kotaku
"I was blissfully lost."
- Ben Kuchera, Penny Arcade
"Coolest thing I played at GDC."
- Patrick Klepek, Giant Bomb
"ZERO. FACE. LEFT."

"SoundSelf may be the hardest VR project to describe. Maybe it's the hardest thing to describe, period."
