Song For An Emptied Planet

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project

Do you like scary stories? Well, you’re not prepared for the terrors of this one.

An emptied planet, Earth without human beings, has been on my mind for a while. If you ‘enjoyed’ the NY Mag article, and would like to think about the future in a parallel, and visceral way, I would like to point you to my [article at NewMusicBox](newmusicbox george grella) that thinks through the media we will leave behind and how other beings might find music within.

And while you’re reading that, use my Bandcamp survey of music that imagines an empty Earth as a soundtrack.

Best.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
