Girl of Diamond Mountain, a cycle of fourteen songs based on a real event, was co-composed by Guggenheim Fellowship winner Carman Moore and Danish singer/actor Lotte Arnsbjerg. It is the story of a little girl who suffered sexual abuse, parental neglect and a wild early adulthood, but emerged through spiritual growth and the love of close friends. The visual projections are by Caterina Bertolotto, who has worked with Julie Taymor. Moore performs on keyboards and Arnsbjerg sings.
