This piece was made to accompany the Oregon Origins project "Seven Wonders" premiere held at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, May 19, 2023. The program included music for string quartet composed by Matthew Packwood and inspired by seven of Oregon's most beautiful geologic landscapes. The music was accompanied by an original dance piece by Makino Hayashi, followed by the story of the geology by Ian Madin.
This piece represents the seastacks at Meyer Creek beach on the southern Oregon Coast. The seastacks are block of exotic rocks transported here and violently plastered onto the edge of the continent. The three monoliths are similar types of rock, collected from the Chetco River.
