Sarah Cahill performs two pieces she commissioned specifically to be performed outdoors: Redwood Shrine by pioneering composer and Deep Listening icon Pauline Oliveros, and Garden Music by 25-year-old San Francisco composer Danny Clay.  Both pieces are meant to include the natural ambience of the outdoors as an essential part of the texture of the music.
