Sound Liberation, an eclectic chamber ensemble/band, was formed in 1996. Sound Liberation's musical philosophy, developed by band founder Gene Pritsker, is based upon "ending the segregation of sound vibration (i.e. musical Genres)". The group incorporates its philosophy by performing compositions that encompass a diverse range of musical genre, heavily influenced by hip-hop and rock rhythms. This enables one to hear elements from classical music to Jazz to music of various cultures at a Sound Liberation show.

"The freedom of sounds, as the name suggests, is truly implemented in a masterful way" 

-  Thorsten Bendnarz -Jazzethic Magazine


"..this is some startlingly original music. I am very encouraged when I hear music like this."  "a most unusual combination of hip hop, bebop, rock shred, show tunes, punk, funk and classical, and original contemporary compositional elements"

- Gapplegate Guitar & Bass Blog


"4 stars"  "unexpected twists and turns...The result my have you seeing visions...strains of jazz, contemporary classical mu    sic, minimalism, and even hip-hop and and African rhythms " 

- John Ephland, Downbeat, Nov. 2010


"Sound Liberation display a level of multi-instrumental virtuosity and imagination that makes middleweight prog acts seem positively pedestrian by comparison. It's not everyone's cup of tea for sure but for the open-minded muso, there's weeks and weeks of musical nourishment to feast upon in these thirteen tracks." 

- Jodi Mullen, This is Not A Scene 2012
