"Unsuk Chin’s multi-layered Graffiticelebrated the idea of street art, from primitive to refined, labyrinthine to stark. Dense, skittering strings in the first movement, cascades of tubular bells and gongs in the second and urgent brass chords in the final "passacaglia" created a work of singularity and authority. Hers is a rare voice which commands your attention." The Observer
"…Chin’s piece begins with unpredictable busy, flickering inner activity… [she] also considers the political implications of graffiti, which can be both liberating and threatening. The slow movement, Notturno Urbano, is darkly mysterious, while the final section, said to be a passacaglia, seemed to bring a new strange instrumental sound around every startling corner."
