"Previous musical thinking and teaching must be reexamined. The task is to develop modes of understanding for the entire art of sound to create a framework within all music and so that the concepts that genuinely illuminate it might be brought together."
From the Preface to Sonic Design: The Nature of Sound and Music by Robert Cogan & Pozzi Escot
"Cogan's whirl…ds 1 is monumental in scale, a brain-jogging investigation into the sound of language.  The total result is raw power and tremendous variety in texture… a piece unto itself, very personal and original."
The New York Times
"Escot's Visione97, a work for mixed chorus, under the intense direction of its conductor created great colliding storm clouds of sound- this piece is short, but it is also an epic."
The Boston Globe
