[Ö] aan de muzikale scherpte van de absolute grootmeester van de " player piano ", Conlon Nancarrow, kunnen deze werken niet altijd tippen, maar dat neemt niet weg dat er echt knappe werken tussen staan, zoals Study no.1 van Kris De Baerdemacker : meeslepend en ontwapenend in al haar eenvoud. (Maarten Beirens, De Standaard, 16-02-00)

[Ö] Hans Roels' angry " Sailing the Waves of Down Below " 51997) is full of rapid keyboard runs and subjective passion, as are Kris De Baerdemacker's three studies from 1999. " Study #1 " is a study in seriality, with repetitive motif built of eight notes. " Study #3 " is memorable for its opening funereal chords, and " Study #5 " employs its propulsive glissandoes for a jazzy feel, soundtrack for a Bugs Bunny cartoon of pursuit and unexpected doubletakes. [Ö] (Mike Mosher, Leonardo Digital Reviews, july 2000)

[Ö] Een stuk slanker is de benadering van Kris De Baerdemacker. Zijn werk wordt gekenmerkt door een proces van verstilling, naar een gezochte puurheid toe. In die zin deed het denken aan de miniaturen van Webern. Een zelfde tendens van een zoeken naar een bepaalde essentie vindt men vandaag zeker in Duitsland terug. [Ö] (Peter-Paul De Temmerman, Het gebit in de hedendaagse muziek, Financieel Ekonomische Tijd, augustus 1999)
