Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Hauser's ear for timbre and texture, density and dynamics, informs his compositions. A single woodblock, or snare, or cymbal penetrates the existential emptiness, finds common ground with the addition of other instruments. Metallic tones shimmer or rasp in an illusion of electronics. A linear pulse is expanded, layered, or multiplied, registers as the complex momentum of thought. Rhythmic patterns as motion studies - static, kinetic, but always disciplined - occupy space with sculptural multi-dimensionality. Silence is rigid or fluid. Colors resonate as in a Rothko or Hofmann canvas - soft, muted, detached, or lustrous, lucid, keen. But like all music, it is aimed at the ear, not the eye. It is best heard in total darkness, with an open mind."-Art Lange

As a percussionist, he has worked closely with European masters such as Pierre Boulez, Helmut Lachenmann, Chaya Czernowin, Olga Neuwirth, and Harrison Birtwistle.
