The Sun and The Wind

The Sun and The Wind

During my stay at ComPeung I look forward to working with words and music of my current project, The Sun and the Wind. The Sun and the Wind reflects the experience of living on ranches in the western plains of Canada. These places have had a sublime effect on my living. Rich in rare native grass, flora & fauna, it is a landscape that resonates deeply. On the land, the sun and the wind are true characters, constant companions and is the inspiration for the title of the project.

As a musician, writer and artist, my work follows a path that attempts to reflect a sense of place in the space of land, of the sounds and scents of the wild, of time pulled away from the industrial world. I am intrigued by what place can have on music, on language, on thought. My play is a direct expression of my love of wild places and reflects the joy of being a part of them as well as the despair at their loss. As an enduring goal, my work attempts to give back to the land and the beings that live upon it.  How wonderful it will be to see where ComPeung will allow shifts within perspectives!
