AllMusic Review by

Cryptid Fragments stands out as an interesting addition to Elliott Sharp's long career in the production of "ir/rational" and avant-garde music, largely because of its concept. Sharp takes the organic sound of a string quartet and manipulates it electronically, based on certain defined algorithms, to create a screechy chaos that still seems more carefully formed than a lot of other avant-garde or free jazz projects.
