ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album contains a set of ten electronic soundscapes for a series of black and white photographs of rocks and trees (by Paul Gabel).
All composition, performance, production, chris wind.

“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….” Eugene Electronic Music Collective

“Wind’s compositions recall nothing so much as California composer Terry Riley’s early seventies material, self-consciously electronic textures build up of simple musical motives” Brent Wood and Kathe Gray, The Ontarion 1990

“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

“‘Rocks (3)’ is an exquisite sonic poem with its unexpected ‘cracklings’ falling into the net of harmonics you gradually build – mammoth girders tensing under some colossal weight….” Michael Chocholak, Skomorokhi

“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

“Here is a beautiful tape by Chris that is comprised of works using her electronic keyboards and effects to create amazing instrumental mood pieces. Now don’t go thinking that this is just your usual New Age brain wave flattening tones, because it’s much more. Chris will take you into a world of loveliness and then introduce you to aural danger with her subtle increases in volume, tone depth, and inconsistent rhythms.” Factsheet Five 1991

“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 1991

“Electronic music that allows the listener to experience the reflective aspect of Chris Wind’s musicianship. Flows easily from moody to meditative, with poetic imagery and intertwining melodies.” Missing Link Music 1989

“…lean and careful synthesizer constructions…” gajoob
