Music for the Earth

As it grows increasingly apparent that humanity lacks the wherewithal to unify over the existential threat of climate change and take the necessary steps to forestall catastrophe, my music has become increasingly inspired by a growing despair. This has led to a growing list of compositions intended to evoke, in the hearts and minds of those who hear it, a comprehension that it is humanity's obligation to act as caretakers, rather than destroyers, of the life that surrounds us.
