This piece began its life at a residency at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada, where the composer was attending the Sound & Vision residency. It explored the experience of being at Banff, the wonderful walks in haunting snow covered landscapes. the composer Jo truman contemplates the collision of the now barely visible indigenous life of the local area with tourism- only the indigenous name sof places still seem to remain. the reverberant tri-tone whiltle of the Canadian Pacific Railway which runs through the valley, which becomes the accompaniment for the singer, Benny Nemerofski Ramsay's voice. The violinist LinLing Hsu contributes sensitive sequences to the work and the voice and prepared piano of Jo Truman links the three parts of the work together. Poems and texts by indigenous writers were gathered from providing a backbone for this audio work.
