Michael’s commitment as an accomplished brass musician and as a virtuoso performer of the alphorn is of major stature. He is a pioneer of contemporary repertoire for this beautiful and neglected instrument which comes as close to any instrument to echoing the true voice of nature. He is also a tireless educator and experimenter using the alphorn to bridge the chasm between man and the rest of animate creation. He performs for concert and out-of-door audience alike, emphasizing Canada’s unique soundscapes and the living sounds of our land. His original theory of ‘natural pitch-resonance properties’ developed after twenty years of field research will change the way the world listens.”
