Press Quotes  
"Oehring successfully captured the dark, depressing and harrowing nature of war and existential dread. Soloist speaker and vocalist David Moss did not disappoint with the vast and strange array of noises coming from his mouth, as well as a poignant recital of the poetic text. " (Catherine Robb, Herald Scotland, 09 May 2011)
