I have just finished editing the score for Forest Songs Book I: HD Songs. This book includes the songs Huntress and Pursuit and is part of an ongoing project. Over the next few years I plan to add more songs to the collection. Ultimately, the songs in this work will be able to be performed as a long cycle, or mixed and matched in shorter collections.
Through these songs, a variety of subthemes and sentiments are approached – from environmentalism, to mythology and memory, to feelings of loss, loneliness and hopelessness, to expressions of beauty, the supernatural, the sublime; and to the inhabitants of the forest themselves – the trees, plants, creatures and otherworldly denizens. As a life-long hiker and camper, the forest holds special meaning to me – there is really no place I would rather be than lost in a forest.
Here is a preview of Huntress and Pursuit. Please contact me if you are interested in seeing the rest.
