Australia Bound - Kickstarter

In a little over a month Ann and I will be heading to Canberra, Australia to perform four of my compositions in a festival of Antarctic music at the Australian National University. I need your support to make this concert the very best it can be and have set up a Kickstarter project to raise the needed funds.

Ann and I are offering some very cool (pardon the pun!) rewards for contributors. These include field recordings, archival prints of photos from Antarctica, and your own musical instrument or composition. I am also producing a SPECIAL LIMITED-EDITION CD for donors only. This CD contains recordings of my first three Antarctic compositions (these will not be available elsewhere until the project is released it's entirety in 2012), and previously unreleased Antarctic field recordings. Plus each CD comes with a one-of-kind handmade cover.

Please consider donating and/or spreading the word. Thank you! Your support really makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

Brash Ice Video

Here is a short portrait of brash ice that Oona Stern and I created with audio, video and photos from our adventures at Palmer Station.

Please use good quality speakers or headphones when listening so you can hear all the low bass sounds.
