The Orange County Register
“ Chapela’s Li Po gets the award for most energetic. [...] What emerged was a barrage of tightly intertwined instrumental and taped sounds, all over the place but tumbling over each other and closely related in timbre. It was difficult at times to tell where the tape sounds – wind, rain, buzz saws, frogs, whistles – stopped and in the instrumental sounds began. Ethereal and whomping episodes intervened, and then big slow waves.
It was ten minutes of controlled mayhem, but that control was key – it gave the work shape and personality” Timothy Mangan
