Claude Lapalme, the Music Director of the Red Deer Symphony, composed and conducted the beautiful overture and the arrangements performed by the Red Deer chamber orchestra on many of the songs.
The CD includes high-energy songs, as well as ballads and instrumentals that range from bluegrass and country, to blues, western swing, and folk. This project engaged 14 Canadian and 2 USA musicians. The song collection asks listeners to imagine what we can do to show greater respect for the oceans and to recognize that we must share our world in a peaceful and just way with the creatures of earth, whose needs for healthy habitat are as important as our need to consume its riches. If one song strikes a passionate chord in someone and creates a healthy respect for animals and an understanding of the necessity for biodiversity, the earth will have won a friend. The songs complement the message of the book, which highlights the need for awareness and activism in preventing the pollution of our oceans. The goal is to accomplish this in a way that combines environmental education with humor and music. Music making is universal and plays an essential role in human social bonding and emotional communications. Therefore, music is the ideal way to instill these values. So sit back, relax and enjoy this one of a kind CD as it takes you on an unforgettable journey.
