About the show

Of the West is a monthly radio program hosted by composer/pianist Philip Aaberg, focusing on regionalism and creativity.

How do one’s surroundings affect the creative process and output? Certainly the high plains of Montana resonate through Philip’s compositions and musical approach. Do other artists realize place as an integral part of their work? How does the place of their childhood inform their work? The influence on art is not only geographic – events of the time are equally powerful.   Listen in – perhaps you’ll hear a piece of music, read a poem, view a building or take in our beautiful landscape in a different way.
