Review: “That pastiche of spy tunes - Bond, Pink Panther, etc. - is absolutely brilliant! No exaggeration. I mean it. It builds a serious piece of music, a legitimate piece of music, extending an existing tradition that listeners can tap into because they have a memory of it. Anyway, high praise for your short piece. It’s also very effective in its structure … economical in the extreme and yet just enough. It has closure and leaves you neither wanting more nor feeling that it ended too soon. And that is no small accomplishment. In that respect, it is like one of Bach’s two-part inventions.” — Richard
