“Chris is truly a master of visual music.” Letters of Fire, France

“Rocks and Trees is excellent! One person who heard ‘Rocks (1)’ thought it was new Philip Glass. And I found ‘Trees (1)’ to be very reminiscent of John Mills-Cockell.” Dave Butler, CHRW

“Beautifully melodic with a touch of Kitaro. Chris uses synthesizers … to create a series of emotions and feelings in a totally alien space. Restful, but also upbeat. This is what electronic music is all about.” Eugene Electronic Music Collective

“Rocks and Trees features a mixture of the melodic and sinister aspects of music which I find appealing….” Marcel Dion, CJSR

“I was sitting at my desk writing and listening to Rocks and Trees and I was thinking, this is excellent stuff – somewhere between Philip Glass and Scott O’Brien.… One of the things I like best about your music is that it constantly takes 90 degree turns and the next sound is always a surprise. Your music constantly evolves, you are excellent at covering the vast musical palette on your tapes. The listeners will flip.” Ben Kettlewell, WOMR

“This tape definitely shows why Wind is one of the better soundscape artists on the independent taping scene. Some of these pieces might even be called impressionistic, while there are also more standard sequencer-based rhythm-driven pieces.” gajoob

“A gentle and atmospheric collection of sound paintings. The overall mood is one of ambience, yet it’s diverse at the same time and full of subtle surprises.” Dan Susnara, Something in the Pond
