Some qoutes -------------------------------------------------------------- "Kevin has consistently outdone himself with each musical project he's been involved with. Not only is he fluent on arrangement and orchestration, he is also a master of themes--his thematic ideas travel through his pieces with a strong sense of grace and fluidity that give his music a unique identity. In my opinion, Kevin also has a thorough understanding of the role each piece of his music plays contextually. They never call for attention beyond what the music needs to achieve. We have been using Kevin on three of our projects so far, and I am planning on a lot more--I'm a fan!"

-- Steve Lam, Audio Media Department / Mattel Interactive -------------------------------------------------------------------- "Kevin's material is A+ stuff. If you're looking for strong cinematic feel and gripping ambiance, look no further."

-- Andre Emerson, Producer / 3DO ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "I really couldn't have asked for more from a contract composer. With a minimum of support documents and phone conversations, Kevin zeroed in on our artistic goals for the project and quickly created music both appropriate and memorable. He was flexible, accessible, and prompt. Kevin's Majesty score perfectly captured the flavor we were looking for. As needed for our game, the tracks deftly walked the line between ambient audio texture and memorable musical passages."

-- Rob Caswell, Producer / Cyberlore Studios ------------------------------------------------------------------- "Manthei is a master at matching music to imagery--both cinemagraphic and interactive. He composed and orchestrated the best sound tracks (hands-down!) that I've ever dropped into a game."

--Michael Waite, Producer / Electronic Arts ------------------------------------------------------------------
