I am beyond thrilled to be part of this project from the ground up, four years in the making. However, I wanted to bring forth this project with the NYFOS family as it illustrates the shared belief that song is the most powerful tool to effectively connect with each other. A powerful film that documents the Colorado River with 9 commissioned new songs (by John Luther Adams, William Brittelle, Glenn Kotche, Shara Nova and Paola Prestini), sung by Roomful of Teeth and performed by percussionist Glenn Kotche and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, with text created by leading Colorado Conservationist William DeBuys. It doesn’t hurt that the songs are pretty darn good, too.
