 From the Album
Merrill Collins & Michael Fitzpatrick: Sky Watching
We all do it. 
We all know how it looks. 
But how does it sound?  
These sonic renderings are journeys 
into the sounds and spaces 
of the skies
Look up
Look out
Look in

We are SO EXCITED to announce our newest CD, a collaboration with Michael Fitzpatrick:Sky Watching! You may have seen Michael Fitzpatrick performing on the United States Capitol West Lawn in conjunction with His Holiness the Dalai Lama's public talk on World Peace.

His Tuning The Planet project takes harmonic instrumental music around the globe to caves that touch the pulse of the earth. And with Merrill, he has explored the sky in a series of thru-composed pieces with grand piano and cello.

Here are some reviews by inspired listeners...

"Sky Watching: an harmonic conversion, dancing on the head of a pin, falling off into improvised conversation between piano and cello with the inventiveness of an ivory bow." — Gary Denk
"KIND is a beautiful song. The piano asks... the cello answers, then teaches, telling stories that float over the question like the wind over ripples. And yes, kind. Like an elder with a child. Who soars, on the last note, to their own innocence." —CD Baby reviewer
