about

“Walking Towards the Sun" is a collection of musical meditations on my experiences hiking the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia. The scale, structure, and musical language of the composition are all related to the Trail. Lasting more than eight hours, the scale of the work is massive and idealistic. Each in the long series of movements gives a unique interpretation of places or experiences from my hike. The movements are organized to trace my journey southward to Georgia. The musical material utilizes both abstract and symbolic expressions of my experiences on the Trail.

Scored for string quartet, these are recordings of sketches that I've made on the piano or Rhodes.
