    Karl was a pleasure to work with! He communicates well and quickly, with the appropriate amount of detail. He was open to my experimenting with his music, which I appreciate, and which luckily helped me come up with a better end result for his project. And his music is beautiful and well constructed, which makes it a LOT easier to come up with the right parts!
