More Info

"Active in electronic composition since 1971, Noah Creshevsky delights in presenting extreme and unpredictable juxtapositions in which the integration of electronic and acoustic sources and processes creates virtual "superperformers" by using the sounds of traditional instruments pushed past human capacities. Creshevsky uses the term Hyperrealism to describe his electroacoustic language constructed from found sounds, handled in ways that are exaggerated or intense.

Creshevsky's first full length CD on Pogus (and hopefully not his last) works his sampling wizardry on performances by Sherman Friedland (clarinet); Lisa Barnard Kelley and Tomomi Adachi (voices); piano improvisations by Stuart Isacoff; Gary Heidt (voice and guitar); Rich Gross (lap steel/banjo); Orin Buck (bass); Juho Laitinen (cello).

As always his music needs to be heard to be believed. A truly singular voice." [label info]

" ůCreshevsky's music is cosmopolitan and streetwise post modern expressionůI do not exaggerate when I say that I have never heard anything like Creshevsky's music beforeůIf you're up for an aural adventure, here's your ticket." -Josh Mailman, American Record Guide

"His works are powerful musical statements that may also become historically importantůtotally fascinating."
-Randy Raine-Reusch, Musicworks

"Creshevsky is as much a virtuoso of the sampler as anyone working in the field.ůHis sampler is a means toward not only superhuman virtuosity, but a new universality." -Kyle Gann, Village Voice

"ůdazzling virtuosity and boundless imaginationůsimply gorgeousůone of the most interesting composers I know." -Jed Distler, Gramophone
