New Yorker: Kline's Daze "an audio-visual feast"

The New Yorker is yet another source of praise for Phil Kline's Around the World in a Daze DVD. Writing in their 2009: THE YEAR IN REVIEW section, Classical Editor Russell Platt blogs about a few "notable" releases previously unmentioned, including Daze:
“A special-project disk in which Kline created, out of extravagant electronic means, a series of tableaus [which] is an audio-visual feast that balances hipster zen with the seriousness of Bach and Wagner.”

Daze has now hit a Big Apple trifecta, favorably reviewed in The New York Times, New York Magazine, and The New Yorker.

Daze has been covered in over 20 publications, also including: Stereophile, Washington Post, Sound + Vision, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sequenza21, Audiophile Audition, and Fanfare.
