I listened very rarely to so beautiful and poetic music made with so many environmental sounds. FRANÇOISE BARRIÈRE, IMEB Co-director

 
 Wow…If you’ve found your way to this iTunes album page [Kuxan suum], click “Buy Album” right now! What Paul has done here is truly a stunning stroke. As a composer myself...I find myself bordering on sharp jealousy. This is music concrete to bathe in. These sounds of nature have been plucked up and designed with a true artist at the helm.”
Soiree Mac (iTunes review, January 18, 2009)

It takes courage and audacity, perhaps, to write a piece about 'finding equilibrium,' in Rudy's works, 'between the wildness of a mechanized culture and a calm that comes from discovering peace inside one's own spiritual place.' But Vastly Shrinking Space finds a potent middle ground by juxtaposing recorded sounds ranging from birds to trucks with vigorously scored, often lyrical cello passages...It is a work of real substance. One felt a real sense of struggle between the pleading cries of the cell and the monstrous machine-like churning. At one point a mechanized roar threatened to take over the cello entirely, until a bird-like sputtering signaled new hope and a coda of tender harmonics."

“There were times when the whole space was impregnated with a soaring, upsweep of sounds. And other times when I felt like I was six years old, in bed, listening to the bugs outside my window. I realize I don't hear that anymore. I found it very moving--sad and entrancing-- too.”
APRIL WATSON, ASSOCIATE CURATOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY, NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM OF ART

  "November Sycamore Leaf brought together sound and video in a stunning combination.
The visual changes, which the composer had orchestrated within the picture of the leaf, were nicely matched by the development of the sounds.
This was a truly beautiful piece.
