THE STEREOGRAPHY PROJECT

“Marike van Dijk’s writing has an organic quality; balanced and seems to find ratios and combinations that are based in nature. I find her music very intuitive and feel that she has great honesty. This record will be just another step in a long career of composing.”
– Gil Goldstein

“Marike van Dijk gives her chamber ensemble a lot of creative latitude within her beautifully crafted compositions on “The Stereography Project.” The compelling results are sure to strengthen her reputation as a bandleader and, more importantly, brighten the lives of all those lucky enough to hear it.”  
– Alan Ferber

The Album holds 7 original compositions by Marike van Dijk and an arrangement of the beautiful She’s Leaving Home by Lennon/McCartney.
