“Sounds great! Simultaneously introspective and dramatic, which is a neat trick.” -David Lang, Pulitzer Prize winning composer and founder of Bang on a Can

“It’s beautiful, slow-moving, very abstract, and yet moving and rewarding. It has silence built into it. It is conceptually fascinating (as you will see in a second). And it fuses and electronic music impulse to the oldest musical instrument of all, the human voice.” -Rick Moody, The Rumpus

“Love the piece, really captivating and insidious in the best possible way!”
-Alex Ambrose, Q2
