Radio Interview, KVNO 90.7, May 1, 2009, Omaha, NE

Review from Array (the journal of the International Computer Music Association), 2008

“Goelle Leandre’s vocal techniques are the source of Jeremy Baguyos’s Balancoire No. 15. An arresting and highly original work, it suggests life in a surrealistic bird sanctuary.”  

Review from Array (the journal of the International Computer Music Association), 2008

“Another standout in the program was Jason Bolte’s Forgotten Dreams, with a great performance by double bassist Jeremy Baguyos.”   

Review from Journal SEAMUS (journal of the Society for Electroacoustic Music in the U.S.), 2009

“Jeremy Baguyos’s Fanfare for trombone (played by Timothy Howe) and electronics was as equally indebted to native music, particularly of Tibet, as to modern experimental composition.”    

Review from Assymetry online magazine 2008

"In Fanfare, written for Timothy Howe, the live electronics extend the trombone into beautifully harsh and clanky realms"
