Notes & Reviews:

Lauded for his "crackling style" (NewMusicBox) and called "compellingly original" (Boston Phoenix) and "both humorous and unsettling" (WGBH), Vines presents "Torrid Nature Scenes" - a series of musical landscapes that instill anxiety and ebullience in the listener. Includes extended liner notes, author readings of the original poems, study scores and more.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The album is called Torrid Nature Scenes. Economy of Wax is a setting of phrases from Darwin's Origin of the Species. The musicians play it all with vigorous professionalism.
