Transparent yet richly multifaceted, Cindy Cox’s compositions synthesize old and new musical designs.  The natural world inspires many of the special harmonies and textural colorations in her compositions, as in her piano trio la mar amarga, the octet Cañon, and the string quartet Patagón.  As Robert Carl notes in Fanfare, “Cox writes music that demonstrates an extremely refined and imaginative sense of instrumental color and texture…this is well-wrought, imaginative, and not easily classifiable music.”  Cindy is a long-term collaborator at CNMAT having accomplished many projects involving sensitive mixing of acoustic and electronic elements.
