Excerpt from the Blued Trees Symphony First Movement Variations

Published on 2018-04-23

This music was created by layering a thematic refrain of the composition with transpositions of the local terrain where trees were painted in 1/3 mile increments representing one measure each of the movement. Each measure across North American was then copyrighted to protect the relationship between the local community, the regional biogeography and each tree that was painted. The designation of which trees were to be painted corresponded to musical lines conceived aerially in the corridors where natural gas pipelines were proposed.
