A Sleeptalker Describes the Rising of the Seas by Alex Van Gils

for string quartet

In addition to his compositional work, Alex Van Gils is Director of the San Francisco Shambhala Center and a passionate meditation practitioner. A Sleeptalker Describes the Rising of the Seas is the result of a vision that Alex had while meditating. In this vision Alex could see the skyline of San Francisco submerged by rising sea levels.
