Selected press quotes

"Juiced, a fiercely aggressive but endlessly compelling work by Brendon Randall-Myers, was the best showcase for the quartet’s skills. The piece set challenges of execution that the composer admitted were intentionally overdrawn — quick, complex rhythms traversed in unison, or deftly interlocking textures — and although the players tackled these difficulties superbly, they still imparted the necessary sense of effort to the performance." - Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

"The evening’s namesake and main event was a five movement work for electric guitar quartet called Dynamics of Vanishing Bodies, brought to life by DITHER...Throughout the angular, spectral strata of the work, Randall-Myers clearly showed that while excitement and agitation (and sometimes a little nervous energy) may add a sparkling lustre to his artistic voice, indecision plays no role in his output; he knows exactly what he is doing and manages to push DITHER toward another state of being, transcendent of the name and beyond the implication of their instruments." - Christian Kriegeskotte, I Care If You Listen

"Simple Machine, by Brendon Randall-Myers is a a cleverly and dauntingly arranged series of polyrhythmic melodies, its motorik cadence interrupted by the closest thing to free jazz here on its way to a triumphant, cinematic sweep." - delarue, New York Music Daily

"Brendon Randall-Myers’ Making Good Choices has an energy and complexity with roots in the composer’s experience playing in hardcore punk and math rock bands. The first movement, called “running with scissors,” is imbued with a rhythmic energy reminiscent of Stravinsky and was played with sharp precision by the Mobius. The second movement, “following directions,” was spacious and made effective use of string noise, color changes, expressive vibrato, and unmeasured rhythms. The final movement, “hanging on for dear life,” combined the rhythmic energy of the first movement and the colorful spaciousness of the second in a compositional tour de force to which the Mobius responded with a ferocious virtuosity." - Scott Cmiel, San Francisco Classical Voice

With Invisible Anatomy:

"sometimes haunting sometimes hilarious and consistently mesmerizing" - Christian Kriegeskotte, I Care If You Listen

“a flight of musical follies touching down briefly amidst austere harmonic totems, absurdist cowboy music, and vaudevillian settings of warning labels... work that reeks of form, structure, and development.” - Mike Compitello, New Music Box

“A wide palette of musical elements, the puzzle of implications harnessed through sounds and their disparate references... sophisticated and dynamic sense of stylistic hybridity.” - Ted Hearne, Mutterings

With Marateck:

"Marateck don’t play thirty-second notes and they don’t quickly arpeggiate extended chords, but they ingeniously integrate polyrhythmics and polymetrics into often odd-time signature compositions...Time Is Over is an essential album for any fan of odd rock music." - Dæv Tremblay, Can This Even be Called Music?”

“NYC's Marateck is a gripping math-rock band, combining shattered, wiry abstraction with moments of delicate atmosphere.” - Scott Gordon, Tone Madison

“Marateck's approach manages to wring out everything that its guitar-bass-drums instrumentation (traditionally) has to offer, while still remaining focussed and direct.” - Emili Earhart, Tone Madison
