“[The Now Hear Ensemble] managed to bring something of a masterpiece into the world with Dan VanHassel’s Ghost in the Machine…This piece needs to be heard, seen, talked about, and learned from.” – New Classic LA
“…it was difficult to tell which were amplified acoustic sounds and which were electronic, but the effect was energizing.” – Wall Street Journal, on Ghost in the Machine
“A magnificently-crafted composition…[in fzzl] VanHassel has created a consistently fresh and surprising dialogue between the live performer and the electronically induced sound” – Lontano Music
