Notes & Reviews:

Some of the most grand landforms have been slowly carved over millions of years by the majestic Colorado River. Today, however, with the growth of industry and agriculture, the river is overused and incapable to reaching its delta. Five outstanding composers have taken the task of exploring this river in all of its contexts: its prehistoric settlements, the dam-building era, the impact of climate change, and its current ecological predicaments. This recording features Roomful of Teeth, who since their founding in 2009 have consistently explored the potential of the human voice and been nominated and received Grammy awards for their recording projects.

The Colorado River has carved some of the most majestic landscapes on the planet for five million years. Today, with nearly forty million people in a half-dozen major cities and an agricultural industry to support, the river is overused, over-promised, and unable to reach its delta. Placing the ecological predicaments of the region in a rich social & historical context, five critically acclaimed composers offer unique perspectives on the Colorado River Basin. The album journeys through the prehistoric settlements of the region, the European exploration, the dam-building era, the industrial agriculture and immigration, and the impact of climate change on the region.
