In The Forest

by Martin, Maria

Abstract (Summary)
In The Forest is a non-narrative, audio-visual work exploring fall foliage filmed in northwestern Pennsylvania. For me it is a meditation on natural color, motion and sound. The inspiration for the piece came after a year of long daily walks in the woods near our house. The sounds for the piece include processed samples of percussion, cicadas, elements from my earlier works, and my own performance of Schumann’s Träumerei (Dreaming) from Kinderszenen (Scenes of Childhood). I specifically chose this piece because of the composer’s intense relationship with nature and the experiences of childhood.
