Matthew Tinken recently presented his Master's Thesis project as part of the annual Brehm Center Artventures event. A video of his presentation - a live, full band concert of his conept album The Turtledove, the Sparrow, and the Crane - is embedded below. (Our apologies for the low audio quality.)
Matthew's album is inspired by a few of our favorite people and places - Flannery O'Conner, Jeremiah, and the Salton Sea. It tells the story of a family living near the Sea and particularly the story of a daughter and her understanding of home.
