Ocean's Edge
  Spirit's Journey

Six lyrical vignettes from the Northern California Coast 
by Robert Bornn and Laura Worth

This colorful and enchanting, nonviolent nature film on DVD is for your
peaceful relaxation and inspiration.  (It is also excellent for yoga, dance, 
exercise, and meditation as well as for romance and family viewing.) 

Evocative, African-inspired music 
by Robert Bornn (on xylimba and drums) 
and Laura Worth (on alto recorder). 

Colorful visuals with six instrumental duets celebrate 
the lyrical, spiritual, and sensuous sides of nature on 
the wild Mendocino Coast.

1. Homeward Bound (1:38)  The seabirds head for home.
2. My Heart (0:48) Nature weaves the smallest things into beauty.
3. Passion (6:35) Great waves and the ebb and flow of the tides. 
4. Pas de Deux  (4:02)  The dance of sunlight, waves, and birds in flight.
5. Courage  (3:38)  The seabirds return and skim the waves.
6. Our Love  (1:00)  Two seabirds unite and fly into the future.

Filmmaker Robert Bornn's latest release, Ocean's Edge Spirit's Journey
sets dramatic coastal images, evocative abstracts, and natural ocean sounds
to original, improvisational duets with Laura Worth.  Their observation of
gratuitous violence in typical "savage nature" documentaries has led them to
develop the alternative, nonviolent, nature film series, Ebb and Flow.  First in
that series, Ocean's Edge Spirit's Journey features seabirds as a metaphor
for the persistence and poignancy of life.  In it Robert weaves their six
instrumental ballads with his natural visuals to create an exciting journey
through the eyes of a seabird.  Filmed on digital videotape at sunset, nature
provided all the vibrant colors and visual "special effects."

For more than four decades Robert Bornn has created a wide variety of films
and images.  In 1968 his first lyrical film, Mandarin Orange Matrix, was
screened at the historic Filmmakers Cinematheque in New York City. 

Robert and Laura (pictures and bios) have also each been making music for
more than four decades. Prior to developing their duo style, they built a
musical ensemble, DIAJ (Drummers in a Jam), creating a new
African-Inspired, California-Grown music.  Robert produced their abum,
Pangaea: Old World, New Visions on which their melodic and rhythmic
improvisations are featured with lead vocalist, Ma Boukaka, the
Congolese-American entertainer and teacher.
