Testimonials

American Record Guide

Jason Starr's documentary about the evolution and composition of Mahler's First Symphony is what all explications should be: revealing, moving, and interesting.  As I watched this I kept wishing that Starr would make films about all the Mahler symphonies.

–Reynolds

Music and Vision Daily

Jason Starr's brilliant and haunting documentary about the Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler is an artistic performance executed to perfection. Starr is an exceptional craftsman, a skilled visual artist who steers his camera the way an aerobatic pilot might steer his airplane through a world championship. When I was through watching, my first reaction was to call everyone and say they had to see this.

Staff Editorial Review
Magnificent! What the Universe Tells Me is probably the deepest, most painstakingly detailed but also approachable attempt to decipher the inner dynamics of a complex work of art ever entrusted to any recording medium.

–Joe McLellan

American Record Guide

A must-buy! I can’t praise the thinking, planning, filming and engineering that went into this enough. It truly is a model for what such enterprises ought to be.

–Stephen Chakwin

Audiofile Audition

A tremendously ambitious film by Jason Starr… a visual and philosophic exploration of Mahler’s great paean to Nature with a challenge to imagine a music that tries to capture the forces of Creation.

–Gary Lemco

Naturlaut

This masterful interpretation of music comes the closest to translating the experience into another medium… with stunning and wonderfully matched visuals.
