  2. Written by Hazel while bicycling along the North Platte River, passing Register Cliff, the place where thousands of settlers carved their name into the soft sandstone that would signal the end of the prairie and the beginning of the mountains. Along the way, death was everywhere - both animal, and people. Recorded and arranged by Kyle at the Art Farm in Marquette, Nebraska.

  3. This song was written for the Owl Barn, a place suspended in the air, who breathes with the wind and filters sunlight through dusty barn boards. She has become a shelter for a wandering deer who lay down to die inside.

    Now, the Owl Barn stays aloft with the aid of barrels, beams and stacks of wood, serving as a sanctuary for a whole array of skins and families of owls. Very soon, she will be deconstructed, and rebuilt as a performance space for theater, dance, and music.

  4. This song was inspired by the Charles Perrault version of Little Red Riding Hood. When arriving at Art Farm in Nebraska, I was captivated by the images on the unfinished walls of our Victorian house, drawn by Elena Megalos, of Little Red and the Wolf. It only seemed right to record this song in the presence of the these characters. You can visit more of Elena's art at elenamegalos.carbonmade.com/.

On a sunny Saturday morning, we have chocolate in our coffee, potato hash in our bellies, and Hazel is hard at work sewing the walls for a small glass house to be erected in the space behind our lovely Victoria. The house will be treated with a song, and a sound collage to be enjoyed by the ArtFarm visitors, at least until they are torn apart by the Nebraska winter.

These videos follow a 1,000 mile bicycle trip through Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska, following that great pioneer path: the Oregon Trail. A thousand miles pedaled for beauty and inspiration, we did our best to capture some of that beauty during our month at Art Farm in Marquette, Nebraska.
