The Gardener – Portrait of Julien Brocal
In this documentary directed by Kathy Kasic, Julien is presenting his work as a composer in a unique place, Tippet Rise Art Center, located in Fishtail, Montana, against the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains, roughly midway between Billings and Bozeman and north of Yellowstone National Park. Set on a 10,260-acre working sheep and cattle ranch, Tippet Rise hosts classical chamber music and recitals and exhibits large-scale, outdoor sculptures. Tippet Rise celebrates the concept that art, music, architecture, and nature are inextricably linked in the human experience, each making the others more powerful. The Art Center features musical performance spaces indoors and out, with programs that seek to create memorable experiences for performers and audience members alike.
