What they say: "Using a small army of percussionists [the score calls for nine to 99 of them, but this performance will likely involve a dozen or so] from across the country, playing conch shells, airhorns, sirens, gongs, maracas, drums, cymbals, and glockenspiels, this 79-minute work is designed to heighten our awareness of the sights and sounds that surround us every day. The work is deeply influenced by the composer’s belief that 'music can contribute to the awakening of our ecological understanding. By deepening our awareness of our connections to the earth, music can provide a sounding model for the renewal of human consciousness and culture.'"
