AllMusic Review by

This Colorado composer and synthesizer wizard makes space music which, at first listen, seems very much in the realm of Jarre as far as rhythm and structure. His first release, Io (pronounced "eye-oh"), has withstood the test of time and proven itself as superb space music, in which Tescee uses many instruments and sound stylings to capture the spatial sense of Jupiter and its mysterious moons. Lengthy pieces, unusual nuances, tempo changes and special effects add to the compositions which were clearly ahead of their time, considering that they were recorded in 1984. His second release, Continua, includes one new cut on CD, and perfectly continues Tescee's musical journey.
