"Though seeming to face the same existential wall as John Cage and other post-WWII composers, Clarence Barlow, like Beethoven and Ives before him, actually builds his own labyrinths, brick by brick, and then searches for an escape. To do so he derives various elaborate conceptual or mathematical guises to circumvent the traps of time, tonality, and style."-Art Lange
