Resting Storm

by Earthsound

supported by


This is an original chamber jazz piece for Earthsound - jazz quartet (flute, piano, bass, and drums) and string quartet. It features the recorded observations of Iñupiat elder Bessie Sinnok speaking about climate change in Shishmaref, Alaska, and nature writer Marybeth Holleman speaking about climate change in Prince William Sound, Alaska. You'll hear their observations of melting glaciers, sea level rise, and other effects of climate change:

Glaciers that I've known now for 30 years
And they're retreating and retreating so fast
When you look out at the ocean it's closer than it ever was
Winters are not normal
You know the glaciers are leaving me, they're leaving us
We've had to adapt whenever the temperatures, or the flooding, or the erosion happens
It's such a beautiful place
Our land, our ocean is part of the people
And we are the people we are because of it
