OPEN MYTHS: The Blue Desert Performed by Adam Sherkin and the New Music Ensemble of the Royal Conservatory under the direction of Brian Current (Conductor) Mazzoelni Concert Hall, Toronto: April 19th, 2012 Video by A.J. Gray []; Sound Recording by John Gray Inspiration for this piece has originated from the exquisite rock formation in Arizona known as "The Wave." This ancient vermilion terrain has been chiseled by high desert winds for millennia. The result is a captivating ocean of rock ridge that moves, pulses and constantly transforms. Coupling these aspects of topography with the poetry of Allen Ginsberg, I have evolved a piece that reflects upon humanity's relationship to Planet Earth and the prospect of a sustainable future. - Adam Sherkin (February 2012)
