Commissioned by Loop38 and created by Dr. Ben Morris, assistant professor of composition at Stephen F. Austin State University, Longleaf traces the history of the longleaf tree and the timber industry in East Texas with video projections, historical photographs, natural soundscapes and music, with the goal of raising awareness about the ecological importance of native forests and their reliance on prescribed fire.

Morris’ piece reflects on the relationships between people and their environments, highlighting the fascinating fire-adapted tree that relies on frequent burns, both natural and manmade. Longleaf explores the unique landscape through the visuals, recorded audio, and live interactions of the musicians, and even features audio from Morris’ own experience at a controlled burn at the Roy E. Larsen Sandyland Sanctuary, which is a remaining stand of longleaf pine maintained by the Nature Conservancy.

Loop38 is excited to return to M.A.T.C.H. and feature this piece as the finale to our 2023-2024 Season!
