A pioneer of world music, Paul Winter has won 7 Grammy Awards for his unique genre of "earth music," which interweaves the voices of the greater symphony of the wild with instrumental voices from classical, jazz andindigenous traditions of the world, introducing people to the variety of species and ecosystems on Earth through the beauty of sound. The music is often improvised, and recorded in natural acoustic spaces, to reflect the qualities and instincts brought into play by the environment.
With his music, Paul has found a means to connect people to a sense of place, promote relatedness to the larger community of life, and assist groups supporting local cultural and biological diversity. He has performed hundreds of benefit concerts and used his compositions to serve environmental causes in a range of countries, including Russia, Brazil, Israel, Japan, and Spain.

Paul was thrilled by the soulful beauty of these humpback whale voices in much the same way as when he had first heard jazz saxophonists like Charlie Parker.
...
The grandfather of all natural sound recordings, and a bestseller, it touched the hearts of millions of people throughout the world, awakening awareness of whales, and contributing more, perhaps, towards saving whales and sea mammals than all other efforts put together. (Paul re-released it on his Living Music label in 1990.)
In the 1970s, Paul became involved in the movement to bring awareness of whales and their extraordinary music to the world.
...
Paul went to Japan several times with the "Save the Whale" campaign; played benefits for Greenpeace and other organizations; and led music-making and whale-watching workshops on Cape Cod and in Baja California.

It realized a long-standing dream shared by Roger Payne and Paul to create an entire album of music based on melodies by whales.
...
In 1990, Paul convinced Roger, a representative to the International Whaling Commission, and a long-time friend, to come to Japan to various whaling cities, including Shoji and Ogasawara.
...
Instead of opposing, on the Whaling Commission, Japan's stance on hunting whales, Roger joined Paul on a joint tour with music, presenting a program showing how whale watching could be a viable business alternative to whale-killing.
...
Looking into the eyes of the wolf as it sat in the back of John's van after the program, Paul was inspired to write his piece "Wolf Eyes. It presented the lyrical voice of the wolf, and a different, gentle image of a creature so long misunderstood and vilified by humans.
In 1973, at a wildlife conference in St. Louis, Paul met wolf biologist Fred Harrington, who invited him to Minnesota, where Paul heard wolves in the wild for the first time.

In the mid-1970s, at a wolf preserve in the mountains of California, a captive wolf named Ida howled a duet with Paul's soprano sax, and Paul featured her voice on the Common Ground album.
...
After the Redding, CT program, Paul went to visit John Harris many times, and John and the wolves stayed on Paul's farm.
...
During the 1978 Common Ground tour, Paul invited John to introduce his wolf on stage, including on September 8, 1978, at a benefit for the Audubon Society at Carnegie Hall, after which the wolf was featured on the front page of the New York Times.
...
In 1979, in Baja California, Paul led a music-making and whale-watching expedition, with the camp set up in the dunes along Magdalena Bay. On the last night in camp,a sea lion pup appeared in the water just offshore, alone and unafraid of the people who gathered around. She came onto the beach, and Paul and the group sat near her quietly, then played a little music, hoping she would feel at ease. She seemed contented and soon put her head down and fell asleep. Paul stretched out in his sleeping bag beside her, and went to sleep with his nose just inches from hers, smelling her fishy dog-breath, and listening with fascination to her tiny "whale-blow" exhalations.

This extraordinary encounter affected Paul deeply, and inspired him to explore the realm of pinnipeds and the role of sound in their lives, in the same way he had immersed himself in learning about whales and wolves.
...
Ocean conservationist Dr. Sylvia Earle taught Paul how to scuba dive for his research for the album "Callings".
...
These elephant recordings inspired Paul's "Call of the Elephant" piece on his 1990 album Earth: Voices of a Planet.
...
Paul and colleagues performed with elephant voices during Paul's Sumnmer Solstice Celebration at New York's Cathedral of St. John the Divine in June 2013, to raise awareness about the elephant slaughter for ivory.
Music for the Earth and the Flyways project
Paul founded Music for the Earth (MFE) in 1976, with the mission to explore and implement ways that music can be used to enrich the lives of human beings and awaken a spirit of involvement in the preservation of wildlife, wilderness and the natural environments of the Earth.

In search of his Earth Music, Paul and his ensemble have honed their appreciation of resonance, and for making music in spaces of great reverberation. They have discovered these sonic temples by rafting into the Grand Canyon, playing in the world's largest cathedral as artists-in-residence at St. John the Divine in New York, or methodically searching for the sweet spots around an alpine lake at 12,000 feet in the mountains of Colorado.
The Grand Canyon
canyonsmall In the spring of 1963, Paul saw the Grand Canyon for the first time. He sat on the south rim and played his soprano sax, and as the sound disappeared into the vastness, he imagined the wondrous echoes somewhere in the depths below.
Ten years later he hiked partway down the Bright Angel Trail and found some of those echoes with his sax. He was fascinated by the idea of his group of musicians making music in this great reverberant space. In 1980, he returned with Consort musicians, instruments, and friends. They entered the canyon on rafts, since the most intimate way to experience the Grand Canyon is from the Colorado River.

Canyon Lullabywas also recorded in the Grand Canyon, and represents Paul's continued exploration of a sound-vision in natural acoustics.Recording the album shortly after the birth of his first child, Paul said it reflected "a new tenderness for life and a deepened sense of awe for this planet as I stood in one of its most profound places. In that great and reverberant Canyon, under the desert sun and the midnight stars, I called out to the Earth and it resounded in response."In 1980, Paul accepted the invitation to become artist-in-residence at New York's "green cathedral," St. John the Divine, with the mandate to bridge spirituality and ecology with his music.

Paul first went to Russia to seek out its wilderness beauty and
listen for the voices of the Russian earth. He traveled as far as Lake Baikal in Siberia, in 1984, where he found such beauty that it lured him back twice the next year with the idea of composing music to raise awareness about the threats facing Russia's sacred sea and its significance as a symbol in the growing environmental movement.
YevtushenkowithPW 1 Poet and friend Yevgeny Yevtushenko introduced him to the writer and environmentalist Valentin Rasputin, who guided him on an extensive tour of the lake in 1988. (In 1990, Paul invited writer and environmentalist Peter Matthiessen to accompany him on another Baikal expedition.

Paul Winter PAUL WINTER's musical realm has long embraced the traditions of the world's cultures, as well as the extraordinary voices of what he refers to as "the greater symphony of the Earth. His concert tours and recording expeditions have taken him to thirty-seven countries and to wilderness areas on six continents, into which he has traveled on rafts, mules, dog sleds, horses, kayaks, sailboats, steamers, tug-boats and Land Rovers.
Paul's journey started in Altoona, Pennsylvania, where he began playing drums, piano and clarinet after the age of five, and then fell in love with saxophone in the fourth grade. Playing in small bands with his schoolmates, first in 'The Little German Band', then a Dixieland band, and finally a nine-piece dance band known as 'The Silver Liners', he became enthralled first with big band music, and by the small be-bop groups of the 1950s, and embarked on his first professional tour at the age of seventeen.

Paul Winter
Brazil became a second home for Paul in the mid-'60s where he recorded several albums. Brazilian guitar, Afro-Brazilian percussion, and the symphonic music of Villa-Lobos inspired the aural-vision of the new ensemble he would call the Paul Winter Consort. Launched in 1967, the Consort became the forum for the whole world of diverse music which Paul loved. Paul Winter remembers, "I borrowed the name 'consort' from the ensembles of Shakespeare's time, the housebands of the Elizabethan Theater, which adventurously blended woodwinds, strings and percussion, the same families of instruments I wanted to combine in our 'contemporary' consort." saxophonist Paul Winter with a wolf
Hearing the songs of humpback whales for the first time in 1968 further expanded Winter's concept of a musical community. The haunting, bluesey communal celebration of a howling pack of wolves and the beautifully complex songs of the whales planted the seeds of ideas that blossomed on a number of Winter's later albums. The rich sound textures and special blend of the distinctive acoustic instrumental voices of Paul Winter and the Consort give Winter's Earth Music its unique and alluring quality; the recorded sounds from the natural world are interwoven with classical and ethnic traditions, the whole infused with the spontaneous spirit of jazz.

Winter's forming of Living Music Records in 1980 has created the recording forum for the exploration of this musical-ecological sound-vision, enabling the musicians to record their special Earth Music and reach the human community with their music of the wider earth community. Winner of four Grammy Awards and six Grammy nominations, the timeless music of Living Music Records is usually recorded in Winter's barn-studio surrounded by protected woodland, sometimes in natural acoustic spaces such as the Grand Canyon, and frequently beneath the vaults of the Cathedral of St John the Divine, the world's largest Gothic cathedral where the Consort are artists-in-residence. It is here under the vast spans of the Cathedral that the Consort perform their major annual celebrations. "People get a sense of community - a sense of the whole wide community of life, which is one of the best things we could do with our music", says Winter, whose Winter and Summer Solstice Celebrations , and Earth Mass performed each Feast of St Francis, are among the most popular seasonal events in New York City. saxophonist Paul Winter makes Earth Music
Bringing vitality through music and awakening people to the plight of endangered species through the beauty of their sounds, Paul Winter has performed over 2,000 concerts in major concert halls of the Americas, Europe and Asia, in major cathedrals such as Washington's National Cathedral, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and New York's St. John the Divine, and in such places as the White House, the Grand Canyon, the Negev Desert in Israel and the palace of the Crown Prince of Japan.
In recognition of his musical contributions to the environment, Winter has received a Global 500 Award from the United Nations, the Award of Excellence from the United Nations Environment Program, the Joseph Wood Krutch Medal for service to animals from the United States Humane Society, and the Peace Abbey's Courage of Conscience Award, among others. Recently his work as musician and as musical ambassador for the natural world has been honored with the Connecticut Music Educators' Association Music Advocate of the Year Award, an Alumni Merit Award from Northwestern University, the National Abor Day's Promise to the Earth Award, an honorary doctorate from Juniata College, Pennsylvania, and the Spirit of the City Award presented at New York's Cathedral of St John the Divine.
