Long-form solo work by multi-instrumentalist composer Andrew McIntosh. Featuring field recordings of pine woods in his home state of California mixed with impeccably crafted instrumental playing. The four parts are continuous and are intended to be played without a break between tracks.
Andrew McIntosh is a composer, violinist, violist, and baroque violinist who teaches at the California Institute of the Arts, with musical interests covering a broad spectrum including historical performance practice, improvisation, microtonal tuning systems, long-form works, and the 20th-century avant-garde.
As a composer he often works with forms and ideas found in nature or in other artistic disciplines, working in instrumental, vocal, and fixed media forms, and was described by Alex Ross in the New Yorker as “a composer preternaturally attuned to the landscapes and soundscapes of the West".
