Conducting is no longer a mere method for an interpretation, but an actual part of the process of composition. Conduction is a means by which a conductor may compose, (re)orchestrate, (re)arrange and sculpt both notated and non-notated music. Using a vocabulary of signs and gestures, many within the general glossary of traditional conducting, the conductor may alter or initiate rhythm, melody, and harmony; develop form and structure; and instantaneously change articulation, phrasing, and meter. Conduction is a viable musical tool for the improvising ensemble.
—Butch Morris

Reviews
Testament challenges not only conductors' orthodoxy but the very vitals of music and music-making-no tradition is left untouched....When the musical history of the 20th-century comes to be written, Testament will provide one of its most essential chapters. ” The Wire
