about

I was approached for a piece remembering the events of 9-11 in New York City. I chose to combine four tracks created during our 2010 ImprovFriday sessions, where musicians around the world meet each week to share their creativity.

1. Storm Warning 3:42
2. In the Sky 5:11
3. The Heavy Air 4:45
4. Still in the Night You Come 7:55

Nothing literal, only four evocations of different "atmospheres" that surround and inhabit memory. Events such as this carry a bit of everything for people; unease, awe, terror, desolation, but also survival, courage, tenderness, remembrance, and the thread of life that will always continue. None of these can really ever be extricated from any other part, and so it is here.
