 Program Notes

This is a portrait in sound to remember: a still space in time, flying in a helicopter over a raging natural disaster, sitting in my kitchen at a laptop. Extended at least an hour, it was utterly quiet save for the background from the ventilation in our apartment. Raw news stream, global access, great lense, Santa Barbara, Banff, satellites… now it’s a chance to add rotors in retrospect and slow down again to the pace of that unfolding. In this portrait, also a reflection on those who already work this way, every day.
