|Nat Evans - Composer||
In the summer of 2014, Nat Evans spent five months walking the 2,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail which runs from Mexico to Canada in a project called The Tortoise. Along the way he collaborated with a series of eight west coast composers, wrote music for an album that will be released on Quakebasket Records in 2015, and developed numerous other music and sound-based events based on his experience, sense of place, the environment, and the intersection of human influence and natural phenomena.
