John Sinnok – Earthsound

This is an original chamber jazz piece for Earthsound – jazz quartet (flute, piano, bass, and drums) and string quartet. Features the recorded observations of Iñupiat elder John Sinnok speaking about climate change in Shishmaref, Alaska. During the piece, you’ll hear Mr. Sinnok speak about how the snow is changing with rising temperatures, so that the sound of people walking through the snow is different than it used to be.
