Arranging & Composing / Original Music

Overshoot and Collapse

This music is inspired by William R. Catton's 1980 book "Overshoot". The music is written as a jazz-oriented four-part suite. Writing this helped me process the realization that a near-term collapse of modern civilization is probable, if not inevitable.
