Reviews

‘The thirty-something composer’s hurtling music seemed only to pause to catch its breath so it could rachet up an evening higher, louder, faster and gustier end to the night’s proceedings.’ Winnipeg Free Press (Staff Reporter), 19th February 2006 ‘LiteSpeed whose techno-inspired rhythms and energy had several young audience members on their feet with excitement.’ Hobart Mercury (Peter Donnelly), 22 September ‘He distributed a variety of ostinato patterns around the orchestra in LiteSPEED, which quickly gained momentum and character through sharp, synchronised violin bowing and an occasional trombone raspberry. He skilfully conceived imagery added to the general metaphor of speed and movement, all of which was underpinned by virtuoso playing from TQO’s percussion players, the engine drivers in this program.’ Courier Mail (Patricia Kelly) 25 June 2002
