Various Whirlwinds

“All of the original heartbreakers were from North Florida…” begins the essay that accompanies this cassette and accordion case. In this experimental work, Tom Petty recordings are digitally manipulated to create new experimental compositions reflecting the tumultuous nature of our shifting climate patterns. The selections on the tape come from the many examples put forward by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, where the natural world serves as a metaphor for love, or love lost. Love too is imperiled by the climate crisis.
