Martha Mooke's No Ordinary Window on Monkmusic Records (Jarrett Goodchild, ICareIfYouListen.com - New Classical Music News, April 2016)
"Martha Mooke's No Ordinary Window on Monkmusic Records is an amazing look into what is possible with one musician and a few pieces of technology, yet it is also a display of an amazing living composer and performer with an imaginative ear. Mooke's compositional craft permeates throughout this album, and the musical worlds she creates are purely authentic. Her compositional style is only matched by her viola performance chops as she is the sole performer on each piece..."
