“Multimedia” is a bland and nebulous term, and therefore fails to capture the elegant and symbiotic blend of song and imagery that is Mike Haring’s new DVD, Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (self-produced, $20). But it’s an apt description, with its dual format of both original songs and familiar classics overlaying a stunning slideshow of wildlife, landscape, and lifestyle photos from around the region. Variously serene, soulful, thrilling, and lighthearted, Haring’s DVD expertly reflects the lifestyle and landscape of Greater Yellowstone—I found myself surprisingly engaged, with each slide and melody triggering memories from my own experiences in and around the mountains and rivers of southwest Montana. It also served as inspiration, reminding me of how much I have yet to see and do in this vast and wondrous place we’re lucky enough to call home. If you’re a skier, you may recognize Haring’s voice from his years performing at Big Sky Resort; his photos should also seem familiar, as they’ve graced the pages of this magazine since its inception. But you’ve probably never seen them together like this—and for a paltry $20, you should. Available at mikeharing.com.
