“This year I set out to capture the stretch of time from when spring begins to arrive in Washington DC and, along with it, the anticipation of cherry blossoms to come on through to the petals falling after peak bloom. A late spring snow with the Tidal Basin frozen over seemed an unseasonably cold but good day to begin recording the cherry blossom season. Locations: Tidal Basin, Congressional Cemetery, National Arboretum.
The song, “When the Moon Begins to Arise,” was kindly provided by Davide Martello. Two years ago, I was riding my bike near the mall in DC and happened to hear beautiful music; it turned out that Davide was playing his grand piano right there in the middle of the mall. About a week later, I was in New Orleans, I heard beautiful music and there again was Davide Martello! I’ve been enjoying his music ever since those two lucky little chance encounters.”
