MATAWAN

"...might as well be "Carroll meets Stravinsky" for all its singsong language underscored by Matt Test’s remarkable staccato sound design."  -Chloe Riley, Chicago Reader

"...top-flight foley design." - Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune"

"The excellent 15-person cast creates haunting sound effects ( hollow pipes, flute, harmonica, saw, violin, wooden frog, etc. ) suggesting the eerie water world and supplying texture to this simply told but richly complex piece."  - Johnathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times

"...impressive Foley soundscape, both music and sound effects. Live instrumentation lends an air of old-time hootenanny."  -Alex Huntsberger, Time Out Chicago

 

RUNG

"Thrilling Compositional Skills...Test's Score - filled with jarring yet inevitable progressions through harmonics and intervals as daring as Britten's or Sondheim's - consistently dazzles."  -Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
