“Jeremiah is an incredibly creative, hard-working guy who makes really interesting work. I always enjoy seeing what he’s up to, and I consider him to be one of the smartest composers / artists I’ve run across.”

 

Christopher Kaufman – Founder/Director of CHIRON Performning Arts

“Jeremiah Bornfield is simply one of the most brilliant people I know. He is passionate and professional – a terrific composer and musician. I’ll be shocked if he is not successful at whatever he puts his mind to.”

 

Mark Greenfest – Reviewer for the “New Music Connoisseur”

…”Bornfield is an advocate for the delicacy, intricacy and joy of Bach.  In a seeming dialogue with Bach himself,  Bornfield can present it with the immediacy of rap and other popular music rhythms (without trashing the harmonies and counterpoint,)…this  is something fresh and exciting…The music is invigorating both for the ‘tradition’ and for new ears… 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bornfield’s music makes one feel good to be alive. What more needs to be said?”

 

 

Michael Schelle –

“Bornfield’s audio visual art  is GREAT!  It is very clever and packed with imaginative humour.  It is easy to tell that Jeremiah has a good time with his work – and that’s what counts!”

 

Warren Burt –

“Way back in the 1920s, Jean Cocteau said ‘Take a commonplace and polish it.  Place it in a new light.  That is the work of a poet.’  With Jeremiah Bornfield’s work we not only get the familiar, polished in a new way, but mercurial changes from one polished object to another, which gives us a continual sense of surprise and delight.”

 

Noah Creshevsky –

“Bornfield is a fascinating talent–original, versatile, and accomplished.  He has a unique voice, but he’s also a musical chameleon, leaping between genres and styles with grace and mastery.  Bornfield’s music is not only worth hearing, it is worth savoring and enjoying.”
