“Reverberations” is a sequence of continuous, large and small sections and gestures, sometimes repeating, that concentrate on one parameter, sound, or performance technique at a time…. Perera is to be commended for his clear, uncluttered score and simple, precise instructions…. Of all the organ and tape pieces discussed here, “Reverberations” offers the performer the greatest intellectual stimulation.
