“ARCTIC is a series of sonic images. Their composition involved a process of sifting, editing and constructing from the many hours of recordings made in the Arctic. The work is a summation of my experience of the sublime: exhilaration, fear, and an overwhelming sense of tragedy unfolding before me. I hope that the music communicates my emotion, passion and concern for this fragile natural world.”
