"No matter how far you have wandered hitherto,
or how many famous gorges and valleys you have seen,
this one the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, will seem as novel to you,
as unearthly in the color and grandeur and quantity of its architecture,
as if you had found it after death, on some other star..."

- John Muir


In 1987 TD scored the video album Canyon Dreams featuring great video sequences of that natural monument. In 1991 a bootleg version of the soundtrack was released, titled The Canyon Dreams, a short time prior the official soundtrack album Canyon Dreams, featuring slightly different music material. The album was nominated for a Grammy award in the United States.
