“…the music out synthesized Tangerine Dream in its hypnotic electronic coloration.” – New York Times review of “Death of the Red Planet”.”Schrader’s music has fascinatingly subtle shifts of color and volume. The listener could wrap himself in a development of metallic sounds seamlessly transformed from speaker to speaker, a delicate but penetrating pulsation of notes woven with a music-box effect, or a melange of dizzying, sliding, wind rushing patterns that make the revving-up of a jet plane seem demure – Los Angeles Times review of “Bestiary”
“Schrader’s music conjures up a whirlwind of emotion from some primeval source that permeates the listener with awe.” Bebe Barron, co-composer of the score for “Forbidden Planet”
