Of Wind and Waves is an EP of vocal and instrumental solos exploring the currents of air, water, and emotions that define our natural and psychological world. The music, composed by Lisa Neher and performed by Neher and flutist Rose Bishop, conjures crashing waves on the ocean shore, rippling water, the erratic flitting of moths in the moonlight, and the longing of loved ones separated from one another.
