ABOUT IDEAS, NOT THEORIES:

 

"When Reynaliz Herrera plays music she explores every sound, every surface and any object... It was an idea based on convenience, but cultivated over years of training.

She is composing with cups and water buckets, she even uses brushes and her own body to make the music that is featured in her original show called Ideas, Not Theories."

By Jackie Bruno from NBC10 BOSTON (featured in "Uniquely Boston")

"Under the drumsticks of Braintree percussionist Reynaliz Herrera, beat-up bicycles are the surface for her complicated, intriguing compositions. And bicycles will never seem the same after you’ve seen her creations."

By Jodie Feinberg from The Patriot Ledger (MA)

"Reynaliz Herrera turns bicycles, water and horns into drums."

By Anna Pulley from DRUM! Magazine

"When you have ideas clever enough to engage those too young to have formulated a lot of theories about theater and music, it is surprisingly easy to grab the attention of those whose minds have become cluttered. Herrera is an engaging performer and exceptionally talented musician."

By Les Gutman from Curtain Up (NYC)

 

"A beautiful cacophony of expected sounds. Herrera puts on a wonderfully inventive concert that encourages children to utilize their imaginations and creativity to see music in the mundane. Herrera creates her gloriously inventive soundscapes."

By Emilyn Kowaleski from Theatre is Easy (NYC)

 

"The genious of the work lays on creating a story by using no words and only music."

By Fernando Cardenas from NY1 TV

 

"This woman is capable of creating music with so little, with as little as a a bicycle wheel."

The Crucero Newspaper, Monterrey Mexico.

 

"A memorable sonic experience"

Posdata Magazine, Monterrey Mexico
