Music: 10/10

-- Johan Chang, The Speakeasy

“the extremely current soundtrack featuring a number of Asian artists helped boost each scene’s impact”

-- Chris Wong, Craccum

“At several key moments in the play, the loud hip hop base-beats give way to a series of more subdued scenes accompanied by the echoing and reverberating soft sounds of gongs and chimes...”

-- Rand T. Hazou, Theatre Scenes

“From its neon-lit set to the blaring contemporary soundtrack, Orientation's confident, brash exterior hides a nerdy insecurity: Who are we? What makes us real? Can we ever be complete if we don't know who to love?”

-- Renee, Liang, NZ Herald

“Emi Pogoni's outstanding sound score, with its drone-like insistency, perfectly complements the choreography.”

-- Ann Hunt, Stuff

“Elliptical Fictions’ electronic soundscape by Emi Pogoni evolves similarly to the other elements of the work, creating a sense of timelessness and abstraction.”

-- Brigitte Knight, DANZ

“evocative electronic score”

-- Dr Ian Lochhead, Theatreview

“The accompanying electronic sound score by Emi Pogoni provides another rich layer, with all three art forms running on parallel trajectories.”

-- Sue Cheesman, Theatreview
