This is a live recording of my piece Leifr heppni, for trumpet and Kyma. It premiered February 26th at the Future Music Oregon Concert at the University of Oregon.
Nearly 500 years before the voyage of Christopher Columbus, Leif Erikson embarked on a journey west to discover new lands. On his voyage, Erikson traversed the frigid arctic ocean and encountered the harsh terrain of Helluland. Ultimately, he arrived at a beautiful land with green grass and wild grapes, so he decided to end his journey. This was the first European settlement in North America.
