In this mesmerizing performance, Desert Atlas shares three songs: "Lakeside," "Twisting Up a Dream," and "A Waltz in Quebec." Multi-instrumentalist Mark Ramirez, who performs and records under the name Desert Atlas, writes what he calls lowercase songs, which document a preoccupation with time and place: geography and geology, weather and the seasons, and, always, the past. Originally from the Philippines, Ramirez arrived in New Jersey at 17. After a couple of decades in the Northeast, he moved to Denver in 2015 and has been greatly inspired by the scale of the American Southwest, releasing his first solo full-length album‚ "The Great Plains are an Ocean‚" in June 2021. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
