To The West — video premiere

November 19, 2019

The Crossing choir (Donald Nally, conductor) premieres a beautifully filmed video (by Four/Ten Media) of “To The West”, one movement from Michael Gordon and filmmaker Bill Morrison’s upcoming work Montaña — a project unfolding over the course of four years.

Each summer the artists meet in Big Sky, Montana to work on movements that will ultimately become a spatial work for a cappella choir and film. Montaña draws on frontier iconography, cowboy songs and historical texts; the piece explores not only the expansive geography of Montana but also sounds and stories from the American frontier.
