"Quotes from reviews"

One of the genre’s major talents!”
Rolling Stone Magazine

“One of the world’s finest electronic artists.”
WFMU, “Synthetic Pleasure,”
East Orange, NJ USA

“His music is already at the level of sonic and musical integration which few achieve ─
simultaneously stimulating and effervescent, soothing and profound.”
Hearts of Space Music Guide

“Slepian offered a dazzling smorgasbord of computer sonorities ─ all of them fascinating, some of them achingly beautiful. He is undisputedly a master of his medium.”
The Newark Star Ledger

“Slepian is a leading practitioner of New Age music.”
The Home News

“I don’t think I’ll ever tire of listening to ELECTRIC DIAMOND, but if I had to pick a favorite piece, it would be “The Way In” with its haunting trumpet theme. ”
— Carol Wright, New Age Voice

“Electric Diamond started their set with a beautiful piece based on 15th century secular medieval melodies. I found this fascinating because it was at once both ancient and contemporary. The group played together as if they were of one mind.”
— Howard Moscowitz, -
