EAR OF THE STORM - This turbulent piece is based on an extended
skatchbox arrangement inspired by the wild rhythms of tornados,
hurricanes and thunderstorms. The listener is in the ear of storm,
where music is born out of the elemental noise only to be whisked
away by the wind. Multiple musical scenarios, characters and
abstractions present themselves within the different phases and
sonic locations in the storm. Each of 17 musicians on the recording
added their musical reflection and resolve to the path of this
