The Grove of the Ancients

By Declan Siefkas


“The Grove of the Ancients (2018) stems from a prolonged period of listening to the forested mountains on the eastern edge of the Colorado Rockies. While there I felt the erstwhile sovereignty of the wind. The recordings I took then have been fashioned together to create the sounding of a fictitious place, which the instruments have since joined.” —Declan Siefkas
