Music from the Web of Life, Joshua Tree

Book - Music From The Web Of Life, Joshua Tree - Lesley Tao Mowat

In September and October of 2015, I went on the road in New Mexico, Arizona & California to be with the Land & Web Of Life there.
We listened to each other ... I allowed the vibration we shared to flow through my BodyMindBeing into marks on paper. It quickly became apparent they were actually a type of music notation to be performed later.
The books are meant to be opened fully to reveal a hidden drawing. This is the music of the place in the form of marks on paper. It can be used as a form of 'music notation' & be inspiration for creating music of that place.
