Music not of place, but of time. Blake is not unsure of who he is and where he lives. He is not obsessed with Africa, nor is he chained to ‘the West’. He is perhaps the first South African composer to be unselfconsciously an African composer. His are the blueprints and stratagems of a new cosmopolitan South African sound.
— The Musical Times

UNOFFICIAL New Music, the artisan's workshop not the sausage-factory, catwalk or gilt-edged securities type of new music.
— Michael Finnissy
