Dense Pack Cellulose Insulation

I have a 100 year old house - wood frame 1.5 story. Roof is a 12/12
pitch. Unfinished attic space is being converted to living space. I
want to get the whole house insulated.

The contractor want to blow in dense packed cellulose, behind the
ceiling drywall. He's saying that I don't need air channels because the
cellulose is packed in tightly, and will effectively prevent air
circulation/moisture out, and therefore won't freeze ( as opposed to
fiberglass batts which would require the channels and ridge/soffit vent

Does this sound right?
