Music for the Earth
Music for the Earth is 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization with the mission to explore and implement ways that music can be used to enrich the lives of human beings and awaken involvement in the preservation of biodiversity, wildlife habitat, and the natural environments of the Earth. 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. Paul’s music has served environmental campaigns and causes in a range of countries, including Russia, Brazil, Israel, Lebanon, Japan, and Spain. Donations to Music for the Earth are tax-deductible and support ongoing creative projects.
Music For The Earth’s activities include:
- Concerts and albums to build community, celebrate the sounds of the planet, and benefit environmental causes
- Wilderness recording expeditions.
- Media outreach and raising public awareness about environmental and social justice issues and groups.
- Environmental and cultural education programs for young people.
- Music-making workshops and residencies.
MFE’s current focus is Flyways, which celebrates the great bird migration between Africa and Eurasia along the Great Rift Valley. The project tells the amazing story of the birds’ long journeys, using the voices of the birds and music from the cultures over which they fly. As a musical metaphor for the richness and interdependence of life in all its forms, Flyways aims to support conservation relating to the birds, affirm the music traditions found throughout the region, and encourage international collaboration to protect a shared heritage.
