The Process Grand Piano + National Park + Improvised Sunrise-to-sunset Concert
We bring a grand piano into National Parks, BLM land, and areas of threatened wilderness to perform sunrise-to-sunset endurance concerts (from sunrise-to-sunset or sunset-to-sunrise) that advocate for conservation and stewardship. The music is improvised - the artist responds to the unique inspiration inherent in the Nature that surrounds them. This process is recorded and turned into multi-medium artifacts to be shared with UNESCO, the NPS, and audiences beyond the immediate space and time of the performance.
Below are some excerpts from an NPR interview conducted at our Grand Canyon NP performance. The music beneath the interview was recorded live during the dawn portion of the performance and is indicative of the music played over the course of the day - listen for the excited birds singing along to the piano.
Below is a video of our overnight Joshua Tree National Park performance. The video includes a documentation of the load in process using hand tools and a pickup truck.
