Desert Ruminations is a two-movement work. The first movement, entitled Anthropogenic Effect, contrasts delicate sounds with overbearing rhythms. The second movement is called Drought Ritual and it is meant to be a call for rain from the same place that has suffered such devastating anthropogenic effects.
The performers in this video are Emilio Vazquez, Clarice Collins, Daniel Lorenzo, and Alex Duke.
There is an excerpt of Sinken on the home page of this website. Currently, there are 3 versions of Sinken: one for laptop trio, one for laptop quartet, and one for laptop trio with overtone singer. The version above is the quartet version.

art song for piano and bass
The text for this art song comes from Shakespeare's King Henry VI, part 3, act 5, scene 6. In this scene Richard has just stabbed an already dead King Henry. He then slips into a terrifying monologue.
The performance on this track is given by Neil Edwards (bass) and Eric Hiller (piano).
