In the fall of 2009, composer Eve Beglarian embarked on a four-month-long journey down the entire Mississippi River by kayak and bicycle, immersing herself in local histories and the writings of those who had made similar journeys, including Mark Twain and Jonathan Raban. During her trip through the heart of the country, Eve kept a sonic journal about the people and places she encountered. These journal entries have evolved over the past several years into the River Project: a collection of original compositions, adventurous arrangements of river-related songs, images, videos, and spoken-word readings.

with Eve Beglarian, Guidonian Hand Trombone Quartet, Mary Rowell, violin and Gyan Riley, guitar
