Composer Glenn McClure is on a journey to Antarctica.   The SUNY Geneseo and Eastman professor will pitch a tent on an ice shelf and listen, working with scientists to collect data which will ultimately shape a piece of music.  His trip is being funded by the National Science Foundation.  Before he left, he spoke with WXXI's Brenda Tremblay.
