Album Release!

I'm thrilled to announce the release of Ensemble Evolution's “Sounds from the Treetops” in partnership with the famed Treehotel, located in a stunning forest in northern Sweden. Collaborating with Ensemble Evolution and the Treehotel was an incredible experience.

As one of world's most iconic boutique hotels, the Treehotel consists of six architecturally adventurous and artistically awe-inspiring tree houses. Each of the six tracks on the album is inspired by one of the houses. The works recall all aspects of northern life, from the icy metallic ring of a still day in deep winter to the otherworldly loneliness of a late night walk under the midnight sun. I was honored to join Ensemble Evolution on their Nattmusik tour in May, 2012, and to perform with them on tracks 3-6. We performed each composition next to, underneath, or inside each of the structures on June 9, 2012.

The Treehotel, along with various community organizations, commissioned the works and sponsored the premiere series of performances. 

Be sure to check out the video below, shot by August Sandström, that perfectly captures our tour under the midnight sun.
