IN THE CLOUD FOREST
IN THE CLOUD FOREST is a collaborative project with violinist/ composer Kristina Dutton. We share common inspiration, including formative experiences while conducting research in cloud forest environments early in our respective careers. We met when I presented at Dutton’s Creek College program in 2016, and have since been working together on music composition and in efforts to bridge ecology and music through collaborative practice and public engagement. In 2018 we were musicians-in-residence at Shotpouch Cabin, hosted by the Spring Creek program at Oregon State University in Corvallis. In April 2019 Spring Creek presented the premiere of our scores for two of Robert Silberglied’s entomology films from the Smithsonian archives.
