I wrote this work to document the soundscape of the old growth forests that are still semi-intact in Norway Valley at St. Olaf College, and combine this with the pipe organ in Studio A at the same institution. These are both locations that I spent many hours at while a student and both have deeply resonant emotional significance to me.

Project funded by St. Olaf College's Collaborative Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Grant.

This work could not have come together without the assistance and inspiration from Luke Simonson, Haley Olson, and Justin Merritt.
