“From composition to composition, each composer’s work played with the acoustics of the space, stringing a succession of contrasting sonic adventures with pieces by Jordan Nobles, Lisa Cay Miller, Alfredo Santa Ana, Rita Ueda, James Maxwell, Benton Roark and Tim Brady – all Canadian composers. The effect of all this cascading, reflecting, enveloping sound was magical – and made the Redshift Vertical Orchestra’s performance an ISCM festival highlight.”  David Jaeger – Wholenote Magazine
