This past summer I visited Galapagos Islands, and I was struck by the abundance and beauty of life that was preserved there due to remoteness and arid climate. What I saw made me realize how empty of life and animals are most places that I had seen in my life. Our forests and rivers are almost completely devoid of life as it once was, and the species that we still see are rapidly disappearing. It is almost impossible to imagine what North American or European forests and river basins were like before humans transformed them into an almost continuous urban and sub-urban sprawl.
I want my piano to be a song of a celebration of seabirds and their life in the clouds.
