We like Robin Cox… and

The Santa Barbara Independent likes Robin Cox and OuterboroughThe Robin Cox Ensemble has presented Outerborough several times in the past month or so.  To Robin, thanks for the inclusion, to his audience, thanks for the listening!  Click on the text below for the complete review of the concert featuring one of our favorite ‘Newer Music’ violinists.

“In a gesture of continuity, Cox also reprised Outerborough, an audio-video piece presented by N.Y.C. violinist Todd Reynolds in his Iridian-sponsored concert at CAF in January. Bill Morrison’s beguiling twin-screen visual of 1899 film footage, tracing the hypnotic progress of a tram over the Brooklyn Bridge, was the sensory seed for Reynolds’ piece. Its enigmatic mix of live and taped layered violins — plus the occasional kick drum thud — naturally reminds us of Steve Reich’s Different Trains, but is yet again a different minimalist-train song in which the dualities of vintage/modern technologies and synchronous motion take us on a heady little trip.”  May 3rd -Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara Independent
