Description

The World Premiere of Scott Macmillan's new composition Woodland Revival is a musical happening, on strage and under the trees celebrating forest diversity. It is experiential original music derived & performed by Mi'kmaw drummers, Persian, Celtic & Classical musicians with an audience moving in & out of the woods.

For many years Scott has been concerned with the state of the forests in Nova Scotia believing the current forestry practices in NS, which include large amounts of forests on crown land being clear-cut, are reducing them to disturbed landscape, increasing eutrophication in rivers and lakes while also destroying vegetation and habitat for birds and animals. Believing this practice to be highly unsustainable he desires with 'Woodland Revival' to generate conversations about these forestry practices in Nova Scotia.

Never sure how he would bring a musical expression of his concerns of the state of the world’s forests to light until reminded last fall by 97 year old Gaelic Scholar, Sr. Margaret MacDonnell as she gave her 1965 Harvard paper ‘Sacred Trees of Ireland’. She expressed her own concern about the present state of the trees in Nova Scotia thus reinvigorating Scott’s imagination and recommitted him to bring this concern into a music reality.

Scott is very grateful to ArtsNS for awarding him the funding to compose Woodland Revival. He is also would like to acknowledge Canada Council for the Arts for their support in realizing this premiere.
