Here’s are a few reviews of Motoko Honda:

“Keyboard alchemist Motoko Honda, whose mix of piano and electronics is a sonic adventure all her own.” Chris Barton-Los Angeles Times

“Virtuoso technique paired with her intensely imaginative mind” “constantly shifting sonic landscape of striking beauty” Susan Dirende-LA Splash Magazine

“Embodiment of a Muse”  “At times she puffed up some Matthew Shipp storm clouds; at times she pounded wit ha grandeur and structure worthy of Prokofieve; her spare strokes on a tiny synthesizer added subtle dimension….Honda is a treasure” Greg Burk-Metaljazz.com

“Imagine Radiohead teaching Franz List how to rock a KAOSS pad; or John Cage facing off with Bud Powell over prepared piano”  Matthew Duersten-Stompbeast.com

“Motoko Honda is a truly gifted and versatile artist. Her solo performance last year at the South Pasadena Music Center was truly one of the most stirring, beautiful, and eloquent things I have heard in years.” Nels Cline-Wilco, The Nels Cline Singers “Motoko’s music is a direct, real-time expression of the Cosmos, the Mystery, whatever It is. To be able to feel this so strongly from a single human playing a grand piano is a moving and unforgettable experience.” Matt Piper-Musician, Author

“Motoko combines clear precision with a nuanced interpretation to animate a composition’s personality.” James Grigsby-Composer
