About the concert, He Said She Said: Balancing Energies: "Reconsider traditional conceptions of the masculine and feminine through the 19th century works of Louise Farrenc and Robert Schumann, and rejoice in bucking those gender norms as energies collide in the world premiere of Bruce Lazarus’ He Said She Said."
"My music is diverse, concise, melodic, rhymically-driven, architectural, cheerfully dissonant, and in turns meditative, humorous, moody, impressionistic, and exuberant. There’s nothing I like more than when a new idea captures my imagination and sets me on an all-consuming search for all its permutations and possibilities.” – B. Lazarus

Moving Parts is “…an optical ballet about seven “moving parts” which undergo numerous transformations such as a chorus of dancing lights and a matrix of buzzing atoms in a kinetic and exhaustive quest for the perfect set-up.” – R. Martens
