Music by William Parker

Ink Drawings by Lois Eby .....Poems by David Budbill

A very special, unique, and lovely offering from these three artists. An original score composed by William Parker for string quartet & alto saxophone, created to accompany a moving series (and montage) of ink & wash drawings by Lois Eby, punctuated with five poems written and read by David Budbill. Inspired by, and drawn from, the landscape and people of Vermont (where Eby and Budbill have both long resided); ultimately, as the title states, this work is a meditation on being native, to a state, town, city, country, or other delineation of physical space.

The original score by William Parker, featuring string quartet & Daniel Carter on alto saxophone, remains available exclusively here on this DVD.

Editing & Montage by Danny Weiss
