This version of the music is made to align with the 1966 film “Paddle to the Sea” from the National Film Board of Canada, and matches what Third Coast Percussion performs live with the film. It differs slightly from Third Coast Percussion’s commercial recording “Paddle to the Sea” on Cedille Records.

"Paddle to the Sea" was commissioned with lead support from the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation. The work was co-commissioned by the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Meany Center for the Performing Arts at University of Washington, ArtsLIVE at University of Dayton, and the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
