Mother Earth Symphony
The music in Harrison's third CD release continues to build on his efforts to forge a distinctive and creative path in contemporary electronic music. Eight vibrant tracks followed by a four-movement composition in symphonic form, which includes two movements in sonata form, a minuet, and a rondo, round out this release. Inspiration for the music on Mother Earth Symphony was founded in Harrison's growing interest in spirituality and reverence for the Earth, as we the listeners are taken on a journey from our first breaths on planet Earth to our eventual return to the heavens above. The range and contrast of the music, from the soft and sublime acoustic guitar lines in "The Moon of Falling Leaves", to the huge resounding exposition and development sections in the "Oceans" sonata allegro movement offer evidence of Harrison's continued evolution as a composer and musician. Also featured on this CD is a featured track titled "Blue Wind", the debut composition by Harrison's son, Zach Edwards. The melody for the song, composed by Zach at the age of nine years old in an elementary school music class, represents his first commercial recording.
