"...What gives his music its formal coherence and dramatic power is, like that of any great film director or, for that matter, historian, is his vision". (Art Lange)
"The relationship that Blake imagines-- between songs, films, events in his life, and other experiences-- and makes into music are never explained. But inferred and implicit suggestions-- echoes of a distant waltz, a soft footstep on the stairs, a furtive glance across the room, a warm breeze ruffling curtains in front of an open window-- are infinitely more evocative and engaging than stated facts. He never develops or embellishes his material in the conventional way; typically, understatement and labyrinth or elliptical phrasing are his means at hand, and when he lingers a while longer, it is an act of deep contemplation. What gives his music its formal coherence and dramatic power is, like that of any great film director or, for that matter, historian, is his vision".
