Reviews

“Crossman allows the music of the Pacific, specifically of Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Filipino traditions, to influence his more or less high modern attention to sound color and sound space…something spaciously Asian but with an effectively communicative vocabulary of Western new music…Crossman is a real force for the present-future.”

(Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, USA, May 18, 2017)

“The wealth of musical activity in Pacific rim countries is clearly a source of inspiration to Crossman, adding a fascinating dimension to music from a European heritage. His discerning blend of East and West creates an intriguing, kaleidoscopic sonic world, one that carries a strong emotional impact…”

(The Music Trust, Australia, July 3, 2017)
