CD CoverCD Cover Today, I’m honored to have one of my photos used as artwork on New Zealand born Composer Annea Lockwood’s Ground of Being CD album cover.  An Emeritus Professor at Vassar University, Ms. Lockwood creates music from sounds in nature – wind, water and rocks - and “found instruments.” 


Her expansive body of work explores unique acoustic and electronic instrument sounds in natural settings.  The album is available at http://www.recitalprogram.com/ground-of-being/.
