CRIS DERKSEN

   
 

QUOTES

She composes with an incredibly natural feel. Gorgeous, playful, wow. Grade (for The Cusp): B+
Stuart Derdeyn, The Vancouver Province

The real treat was Cris Derksen. With repetitive loops and beats blended with her deep cello sound and voice, it was a dreamy and wonderful performance.
Drew Anderson, Serve Calgary

“You can do way more with the cello, I think, than a lot of instruments.” Considering Derksen’s approach, that’s an understatement.
Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight

While you may or may not remember her name, you'll likely come to know her (if you don't already) - her unofficial title: "the punk rock cellist." If the phrase sounds out of the ordinary, know that Ms. Cris is very used to messing with preconceptions.
Denise Sheppard, Xtra West

Dersken started with an amplified version of Bach's Suite No 1 for cello. From there she degenerated beautifully into sounds we had never heard before. We were both seduced.

"If you haven’t seen her yet, be sure to take in her next concert around town."
Pat Hogan, www.soundsandfuries.com

The cellist, whose blend of classical technique and unfettered imagination has made her a sought-after musician in the local underground scene.
Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight
