Fall to the Sky is a collaboration that was inspired by an
incredible collection of bronze reliefs by Arizona sculpture artist, John Henry
Waddell and music by Chieli Minucci and Kris Lanzaro. Waddell’s work, called
Rising was just recently completed after eleven years of hard work. Waddell
hopes to find a home for this collection, possibly in New York as a dedication
to the victims of 911. Chielis music, Jewel in the Desert Sky was originally
released as Jewels back in 1995 and was recently reworked, remixed, rearranged
and completely rewritten, in collaboration with Lanzaro who lives in Germany.
This process of completing the new rendition all took place via cyberspace! Fall
to the Sky embraces the human spirit in search of enlightenment and peace. This
premiere collaboration is dedicated to the memories of loved ones lost to
disease, war and all tragedies.
