Orange County Register:

I’m not like the avant-garde artist who is always concerned about being new and original,” he said. “I have a lot of fun with clichés and archetypal musical elements, no matter where they come from, whether it’s Rock-and-Roll or Jazz or a Beethoven String Quartet.

I mean, I’m not afraid to go back and use that material in a way that is somewhat unexpected and new. But my credo is not to be original in everything I do. I like dipping back and taking things we’ve heard before and putting them in a new set of clothes, or maybe placing them in a new room.”

– Composer Steve Moshier

“Steve Moshier manages to give birth to some sort of ritualistic mythical electronica, powerful yet subtle”

-Mihaela Vasilu, The Attic

“Steve Moshier’s electronic miniatures are a dizzying array of well-crafted sound-pieces”

– Composer Paul Sturm on facebook

“It is rich, always beautiful, intelligent, “humane” , sometimes sweet, sometimes aggressive, expresses a whole lot of emotions but always in a “contained” way – in one word it reflects the totality of life”

– Composer Adam Kondor, the late ‘NetNewMusic’ discussion (2009) “The Music of Steve Moshier”

“Bold and Intuitive”

Lewis Segal, LA Times

“Brain-tickling composer Steve Moshier”

‘Dance in Los Angeles’ Blog

“Moshier often builds minimalist tension with a melody of about four notes, taking its variations into seductively intense territory”

Jennifer Fisher, LA Times

“Very heroic and confident, like an Alex North score”

– Singer, actor, avant-pop writer, Rock and Roll ‘Hall of Fame’ inductee Tom Waits to Robert Koehler, LA Times

“Moshier’s score veered towards melody – Bach-like inventions”

Victoria Looseleaf, LA Times

Steve Moshier’s majestic, propulsive score”

“Limestone Gates” (2011) on Spectropol Records

“These older electronic works for the theatrical stage, created by taming unruly analog devices into something rather organic, seem musically timeless; but they also reanimate the L.A. Scene of those years of which Moshier was a part.” 
-Bruce Hamilton, Spectropol Records

“This is very delicate ambient electronic music. The “Boy’s Life” suite is so quiet it challenges your threshold of perception. And “Sudan,” in the course of its 26 minutes, marvelously maintains a fragile ambience.”                  -François Couture, ‘Music Journalism and Music’ Blog

“Limestone Gates is an excellent introduction to Moshier’s work”                                                                          – John Shanahan, Hypnagogue

Mash-up by composer Adam Kondor at Improvfriday site (2/17-2/19/11) World Music in Perspective

“In the midst of this aural witches brew, Homler and Moshier manage to fuse quasi-human utterances and quasi-musical drones into something both alien and wonderful. The music’s sense of rhythm is entirely internal, but unmistakable; making a polished work of vocal and electronic synthesis that draws the listener in as if by spell
