Eric Funk just sent me his contribution to Sonic Divide. It’s a gorgeous meditation on life and solitude and our place in these vast cosmos. Eric wrote for voice and log drum/found pieces of wood from the forest, with text by John Haek. I’ve already learned the first page and I love it. The second line is “I am alone on the summit of a mountain . . .” I’ll definitely perform this on one of the Divide crossings at the top of a mountain in Montana. Eric was born and raised in Montana. He still lives there and composes, performs, teachers, and runs an amazing PBS show about music in Montana called “11th and Grant with Eric Funk.” I’m really honored to have him on board with this project.
