From the Ground Up – video

From the Ground Up was commissioned by the Montana Farmers Union for their 100 year celebration in 2015. Music by Philip Aaberg, video production by Max Murray and photos provided by Montana Farmers Union and Dean Hellinger (Shelby, Montana)

    This is lovely — the music and the photo/video work meld to make a composition that is even “farther up”, rising from the roots of the land through the animals and machines to unearth the creative soul of labor, the life it nurtures…and its gifts that endure.

  • Donald M. Scott

    The video brings the music home, Phil, and gives us the sense of the place. A beautiful addition to the disc and my Aaberg collection.

    Wonderful music, attuned to its historic setting and looking to the present and future.
