Like many other faculty members at Southwestern, Music Professors David Asbury and Bruce Cain share a passion for lifelong education, creative exploration and environmental activism.

The two have combined these interests in a new project they are sharing with audiences across the country.

The lyrics for the song cycle came from the archives of River of Words, a California-based organization dedicated to educating young people about environmentalism through art and poetry. The organization holds an annual contest for entrants ages 5-19, and poems were selected from among hundreds in the contest archives.

Asbury and Cain commissioned seven different composers to set poems of their choice to music – including Jason Hoogerhyde, associate professor of music at Southwestern. Other composers were Terry Vosbein from Washington and Lee University, John McGinn from Austin College, Brad Osborn from Rhodes College, Daniel Crozier and Susan Cohn-Lackman from Rollins College, and Brian Nelson, formerly of Trinity University.

The composers set each of the poems to very different styles of music, ranging from music with a Renaissance theme to music of the Far East. One even used a computer to generate the pitch and duration of each syllable in the poem. He then crafted a harmonious accompaniment that recycles and reuses the same materials throughout the composition – the musical equivalent of the "leave-no-trace" environmental mantra.
