Qasim Naqvi BMI 2014

"Terrific"-Alex Ross, classical music writer/New Yorker

"An extraordinary, strikingly beautiful piece"-Lawrence A. Johnson/Chicago Classical Review

"a complex but evocative babel of voices in which words are distinguishable as sounds at once floating and, paradoxically, grounded in terra firma." - John von Rhein/Chicago Tribune

"Sounds great! Simultaneously introspective and dramatic, which is a neat trick."-David Lang, Pulitzer Prize winning composer and founder of Bang on a Can

"It’s beautiful, slow-moving, very abstract, and yet moving and rewarding. It has silence built into it. It is conceptually fascinating (as you will see in a second). And it fuses and electronic music impulse to the oldest musical instrument of all, the human voice."-Rick Moody, The Rumpus

"Love the piece, really captivating and insidious in the best possible way!"-Alex Ambrose, Q2
