"Kujala's new Alba recording includes an excellent and fascinating collection of works from five Finnish composers. In Trois Mondes for organ and electronics (2010-11), Maija Hynninen takes inspiration from the auditory and visual illusions of Jean-Calude Risset and M.C. Escher." Anna Pulkkis, Finnish Music Quarterly 2019.

"The music of Maija Hynninen explores the breaking of sound and the continuity of music:
a spectacular effect."
"Acoustic elements in all of the works overlap with Hynninen's self-produced electronical soundscape.
The end result is a natural electroacoustic coexistence and interaction."
