The artistic and intrinsic qualities of Cloud Messenger aroused interest of the media even before the world-premiere, below is an except from the well-known Dutch TV program Vrije Geluiden.
Press about Cloud-Messenger:
- And versatile is the latest production of e.g the Russian-Dutch composer Fred Momotenko. Just as the festival itself had wished ... a creator from now with electronics, projection and magical music for recorder and dance: Cloud Messenger, (VPRO, Dutch TV broadcast).
- Fred Momotenko’s Dust Against the Wind (NL) would make excellent film music, which you would expect. (review from international Festival World Music Days 2012).
- Fred Momotenko, who previously interviewed by Thea Derks for Radio 4, Eigentijds and Muziekvan.nu, has presented Cloud Messenger, the three quarters of dance, projection, acoustic block-flutes sounds and electronics. It has provided a solid multimedia spectacle (Muziekvan.nu, website about 20th and 21th century music).
A grateful gratitude and a high esteem for all support, effort and confidence.
