Windham Hill Artists: The Shape of the Land

Shape of the Land1986, Windham Hill WD-1055

Music from a film biography of Japanese explorer/adventurer Naomi Uemura, whose achievements included solo ascents of the highest, most difficult peaks on each continent, a solo trek to the North Pole, and a solo raft trip the full length of the Amazon, and ended with his 1984 disappearance during a stormy solo descent from Mt. McKinley. The soundtrack includes music by Philip Aaberg, Will Ackerman, and Michael Hedges. Michael’s contributions include the two solo harp-guitar pieces “Because It’s There” and “Nevermore” as well as a short reprise of the former as part of “Requiem for a Mountain Climber”.
