"They were all involving, well-crafted works, played with great confidence by Advocat and Sharrock." — The Boston Globe

 

"Ever so soft throbs from a marimba synced with gentle soundings from a tantalizing bass clarinet. Every so often, an angular fragment of melody would surface. Halfway through this enchanting duet piece, more pointed, synced syncopations 'excited' though always in a much toned down way. ... Amy Advocat, bass clarinet, and Matt Sharrock, marimba were nothing short of fabulous continually leaning on the threshold of discernibility." — The Boston Musical Intelligencer
 

 "Sharrock and Advocat played with intimacy and keen attention to one another, even as the music itself kept them in separate worlds, alienated but not alienating." — The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

"Your session on "Learning to Learn" could not have been any more on the mark... My only regret was that we only had one hour to give you." — John Lawless, Director of Percussion Studies, Kennesaw State University

 

"Before we met, and without any direct coaching from me, Transient Canvas created definitive interpretations of my music. In “Small World,” clarinetist Amy Advocat mastered the stop-and-go alternation of drunken bent notes and virtuosic display, all the while intuiting the zany sensibility I sought. I first heard Matt Sharrock play in my percussion quartet, where he effortlessly grasped the subtleties of attack and inflection I imagined. Both musicians went far beyond accuracy to create distinctive realizations of my ideas. At Transient Canvas’s recent duo recital, I was taken with their ensemble precision, with their capacity for technical and expressive extremes, and with their adventurous spirit. They work intensively together as an ensemble, as well as with their composer colleagues. Such attentiveness and enthusiasm are as important to me as is performance expertise. These two have it all." — Barbara White, Composer, Professor, Princeton Universtiy
