The vastness of Jonathan Harvey's awareness, talent, compositional skill, philosophical knowledge and imaginative-creative use of electronics form a whole that cannot be divided or separated.

From whichever point he sets out towards his chosen subject, Harvey uses a secure underpinning of ability and multiplicity of techniques to achieve the most beautiful and thought-provoking results.
