WILLIAM HARPER implodes the forms and colors of electronica, classical, pop, folk and opera, galvanizing a radical new musical vision for a diverse and devoted audience of all ages.
"The... music is magnificently eerie, the mystic's aria pristinethe major sequences surged thrillingly. Harper allows himself an unembarrassed neo-renaissance grandeur, wild around the edges." Alex Ross, New York Times
"William Harper paints in long, bold strokes, balancing scenes instead of motives, and propelling the ear on voyages of emotion. Elegant counterpoint interwoven with Gregorian Chant joyous ensemble pieces break out at every dramatic juncture. The tonality is postminimal, but the ways textures alternate and recur provides an effective, Stravinskian illusion of perpetual forward motion." Kyle Gann, Village Voice
