In the Mojave: Part 1
In the Mojave is a multi-movement work which depicts some of my adventures in the Mojave Desert. Part 1, is largely reflective and spiritual in nature. Many of the movements make use of motifs indicative of the surroundings. Instruments featured in this excerpt, include Dizi, Alto Flute (Lisa Yamamoto), Strum Stick, and Metalchord - (single-stringed instrument constructed from a metal fence post and an antique piano string).
