"The moving shapes and images on screen tied to every note. Nothing was left out, from the piccolo shrieks being paired with a racing rainbow of colors to the percussion dictating when certain shapes rose and fell. At one point, when the music’s ominous dissonance grew, the shapes gave way to a stony, desolate earth that moved with the fluidity of water, following every contour of the melody in a queasy manner...The music lends itself to being wildly energetic, and Kalmar brought that out in a way that connected beautifully with Haber’s vivid images playing above the orchestra.”
-Colton Trujillo (Vanguard)
