Little Cosmos – Composing in the Wildernesss

Finally posting the piece I wrote during the Composing in the Wilderness workshop! It is performed by members of the Corvus Ensemble who did a great job, especially with only two days to learn the piece along with eight other compositions! The piece was composed in four days after hiking in Denali National park and performed in both Denali National Park and Fairbanks Alaska as part of the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival.

My program notes on the piece:
“While in Denali, we were guided by the amazing scientists and naturalists Davyd H. Betchkal, Sarah Stehn and Nan Eagleson who opened my eyes to complex worlds of moss and lichens that exist right under our feet.

My piece, Little Cosmos, recreates the experience of zooming in on these microcosms after gazing out at the mountain ranges, where these little worlds can be just as colourful, vibrant and intricate as the view before you. ”

Composing in the Wilderness 2016

I’m very excited to be in Alaska right now on my way to Denali National Park to partake in the Composing in the Wilderness program!

Ill be spending two weeks in Denali and Fairbanks composing music for the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival. We’ll be exploring Northern Alaska: Denali National Park and Preserve and the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, taking inspiration from our adventures and creatively interpreting them into our compositions.

In the mean time here’s a quick pic I took in Anchorage. Gonna be seeing a lot more mountains pretty soon!
