Inactuelles, Musiques Singulieres, a French music blog that reviews contemporary, electroacoustic and experimental music.
"I am [enchanted] by the steps of the composer, who invents a different path for each piece."
From the New Music Website I Care If You Listen
“Biver creates a playground for internal exploration that is both fascinating and deeply effective….The best of Biver’s music lies in the layers; the moments where one instrument feels too close, or too separate, or where the listener questions whether the tapping and clicking audio tracks are coming from the album or from somewhere outside. Fuse Ensemble’s 3: The Music of Gina Biver demonstrates the enormous possibilities that come with composer-engineer crossovers–and it is just so much fun to listen to.” -Hannah Rosa Schiller

Review of our new album on Midwest Record, Entertainment News, Views, Reviews July 18, 2018
FUSE ENSEMBLE/3 The Music of Gina Biver: She doesn't look like an art chick that would show up in a dress made of meat but I guess looks can be deceiving. A highly personal and unusual album that goes way beyond even hippie, drug fueled experiments of the 60s, it just show to go you that you'll never know where someone can have a dark side that pops out unexpectedly. A progressive classical side to shoe gaze pop, this is certainly not a date for the feint hearted. Prepare for a sonic walk on the wild side. (Ravello 7993)
