The music for Andrew’s Border Trilogy came from several musical and literary inspirations. Themes of desolation and cultural displacement, similar to those found in American novelist Cormac McCarthy’s trilogy of the same name, are threaded throughout the three movements. Mariscal Mines developed out of a flamenco guitar improvisation that Andrew played at an abandoned uranium mine we visited on the Texas-Mexico border. Gunslinger is the namesake of Roland Deschain of Gilead, the fictional character and protagonist in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Series. Black Warrior is also inspired by an abandoned mine of the same name—this one in the North Cascades National Park where we did a two week composing residency in 2012. Composed for the album Viewpoints.
