Praise for Bruce Bond's Vault

"Gravid, lucid in its stillness and haunting music, Vault is a symphonic poem whose six movements explore personal loss, capitalism, memory, and the passage of time, often through urgent metaphor and paradox...  Recalling the compassionate music of Gustav Mahler, Bruce Bond attempts 'to teach the heavens what it is to grieve.'"

-- Mark Irwin
