Known for his fearless reinterpretations of the classics, organist Cameron Carpenter has decisively brought the pipe organ tradition into the 21st century. Carpenter is “the Maverick Organist… he is a player with extraordinarily glib fingers and Astaire-like footwork… a first-rate talent with a sense of how phrases move” (The New York Times).

“Carpenter is one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument… He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And, most important of all, the most musical”
– Los Angeles Times

In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on a harrowing journey to the summit of Burma’s Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. They didn’t realize that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be their dwindling rations, the grueling jungle hikes, or the life-threatening hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavor. Leader Hilaree Nelson recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richard’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s searing documentary Down to Nothing.
