Life Across the Sea

Life Across the Sea


Duration ~ 9:30

Program Notes:


The impetus of Life Across the Sea is the examination and exploration of human migration; how the values and ethos of our present are impacted and shaped by the values and beliefs of immigrants. The piece unfolds as the story of migration. Living in a region of the country with strict environmental protection laws, Life Across the Sea specifically explores the connection of the environmental values and beliefs of Scandinavian and Nordic immigrants with the ecological ethos of Americans today.


Inspired by ancient folk songs of  the entire Nordic region, I crafted and integrated, into my own themes, an amalgamation of melodies and fragments of melodies, as a thread of continuity in weaving the piece.
