(Lori Townsend, APRN Anchorage, 5 March 2008) -- University of Alaska Fairbanks professor Jim Bicigo has composed some new music--celebrating the International Polar Year.
It includes five movements, each highlighting a polar theme from the
Aurora to "break up" and climate change. It's also available to
download as a ringtone. Bicigo says he was originally asked to compose
a short piece to kick off the International Polar Year. It was such a
success, organizers asked him to expand it into a full length
composition. Bicigo's composition is called "Polar Synthesis." The
piece will premiere this Saturday in Fairbanks.
