“I’m sent a lot of boring electronic gibberish, but chris wind is a step above the rest combining a multitude of styles, genres, noises, and poetry. He’s remarkable!” John Cloud, Radion Föreningen

“A magnificent cassette.” Sue Pulfer, CKCU

“This tape is representative of the various approaches Wind applies in his creation of electro-acoustic music. His best works are the pieces that combine piano with baroque-like clavichord synthesized sound colors. These pieces are simply yet elegant in their structure. His keyboard technique is quite proficient and his sense of timing admirable, giving each composition a hypnotic quality. His arrangements for multiple instruments, combined with subtle synthesizer manipulation, are delightfully silly on “pas-de-deux” and entrancing in their liquidity on “Paintings”. Wind is a competent arranger, composer, and musician, with a touch of child-like magic that imparts a joyful eloquence to his music.” Nathan Griffith, Option
