review:
cyrus creates a music that reflects on itself from the inside outward. it is part of a
world ahead of its time and critical of its velocity. the music is obscure yet familiar.
it has the audible tinge of an old jazz recording, and the hep cat contemporaneous
stylings of chicago drum bass. it is attention to detail, and an obliteration of
artiface. it is a composed series of relating objects in a dance with resistant harmonic
structure. it is music now that we may not know yet. it is relevant to a discussion no
one seems to want to have, but will be inevitably forced to recon with. it is over
bang on a can, it is crushed can into plowshare exuberance. It is an ambitious project
hinting at a fearless music, electrified by past and present technology. It could be
more when self-consciousness becomes conscious intention confident in its failures
looking forward to future successes, blinded by its own vision. I suggest we all
listen. a protocinematic vice. -anthony ptak (writing on the work of cyrus pireh)
