Blue Planet Blues — concept and text by Zsuzsanna Ardó, music by Jonathan David.

As suggested by the title, the three-movement work focuses on the desecration of our planet's oceans and waterways. The first movement is a choral meditation on the single word, "Blue." The central movement juxtaposes the starkly contrasting words of Donald Trump and Teddy Roosevelt on the topic of environmental stewardship. The final movement is a fantasia on water in all its myriad forms. BPB features considerable "watery" aleatoric work, as well as spoken word, and is centered on the mode of Lydian-Flat7, also known as the acoustic scale.
