Mountain Gods, The (15 mins.) (piano, tape/CD, spoken text and extended vocal techniques,) (a poem by Canadian Liliane Welch), is about the mystery, trepidation and awe of bivouacking on a mountain ledge. Musing on Welch’s poem "The Mountain Gods", McIntosh - herself a mountain climber - evokes the mystery of a night on a mountain enroute to the summit, awaiting the mountain gods' whims.
