NOTES
On a recent trip to the North Carolina mountains near Black Mountain, I recorded the evening chorus of deep forest insects. I used this field recording as a background over which I composed an ambient layer of synthesized glass and bell sounds on the pitch sequence from the dies irae. Early autumn has always signified to me the transient nature of life and the impending frozen death of winter.

Three Trees in Winter is based on three field recordings I recorded during a January and February in the Ohio woods. The sparse hollow sounds of the frozen forest serve as the basis of these compositions.
