Daniel Felsenfeld, Time Out New York

‘The music of Boston-based composer Lee Hyla is a riveting, bejeweled enigma, one in which disorder and confusion crash into pristine, balanced beauty. A fascinating study in contrasts, Hyla’s scores pit blunt noise against placidity, and lushly scored masses vie with percussive, rocking grooves. Hyla’s is a wholly original voice, and at long last, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project has committed three of his major works to disc via New World, one of the few American labels still concerned with preserving an promoting contemporary music.’
