“quietly virtuosic and addictive”   -  The Wire UK

“a rich, beguiling composition”  -  The New York Times

“Constructed as free fantasies, where moment-to-moment activity takes precedence over organizational unity, they articulate small details with energetic gestures - jolting, swooping, lilting rhythms; irregular phrase lengths and unexpected accents; string harmonics, bristling pizzicati, exaggerated bowing, and other textural effects…Either/Or provide nimble accounts of the engaging music at hand"   - Fanfare Magazine

KEERIL MAKAN: TARGET

Label: Starkland

Available at: iTunes

Performers: Either/Or: Jennifer Choi (violin), David Shively (percussion), Alex Waterman (cello).

"grabs hold of you right away with musical language that is simultaneously straightforward yet highly nuanced... Either/Or’s timbral virtuosity is particularly stunning and they bring a perfect melding of energies to this exciting performance." - Sequenza21 

"a sound world in which music emerges unexpectedly out of violent textures, gestures and cries... Shively negotiates his way brilliantly through alternating waves of aggressive onslaught and evanescent, amatory sighs." - Gramophone
