The music is a soundtrack to a film I shot/edited of a sculpture that
is made entirely of twigs and other living plants; it's at the Santa
Barbara Botanical Gardens, constructed by Patrick Dougherty.

  Hmmmm....I'll just be straightforward and honest with my subjective impression of this piece. I jumped directly to the mpeg to get the full impact of the work. I love the music, and the video of the twig structure is interesting, but the two don't seem to compliment each other for me. The video has a sort of natural and out-doors feel to it, but the music seems more ethereal and deep (large, as if in a real cathedral?). Over five minutes of video of the structure seems a bit long to me as well. Again, this is just my own personal reaction to the piece. Taken separately, I very much like both the video and the music. The music does convey the sense of a cathedral for me, just not the feeling that I get from viewing a twig stucture in the outdoors, which seems to thurst for a more earthy and nature-ritualistic feel...dryer, more direct and down to earth. I realize, however, that it is probably difficult to get these two themes to work together well. I don't think I could have done it with the given instrumentation. I would have been compelled to use acoustic instruments, but that is just personal taste for me.
