When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. -- John Muir (1838-1914), Scottish-born American naturalist, author, explorer and writer

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. Amalgamated, this is his personal alchemy, which affects everything he undertakes. 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.

The Latvian Radio Choir is amazing: their control and expression superb...
