I AM HUMANITY was written by Julianne Woodward, Logan Peasley, Vicki Windle and Quinlan Valdez at Casper College during a BOCES songwriting/recording instruction series.

The project was made possible by BOCES in Casper, Wyoming. This diverse group (ages 15-58) met over the course of a week in a piano lab at Casper College to learn about fusing digital technology with brick and mortar tools to write and communicate a song.  We explored songwriting techniques, learned about garage band, pro tools, digital pianos, acoustic guitars, banjos and crayons.  This was a collaborate writing project that had us moving from computer to notebook to instrument to microphone. Casper College Professor,  Jennifer Cowell makes a guest appearance on the violin.
