2016. 9-10 minutes. String orchestra: Vln I, Vln II, Vla, Vcl, DB. Performed by USC Thornton School of Music Musicians, conducted by the composer.
Beautiful places and spaces are inherently mysterious. The music in the piece is meant to depict not a specific landscape, but the experience of exploring a new place. Questions turn to discoveries as the soloists ruminate on what is before them. After a while the music embraces the search, scaling a mountain of notes before returning to meditation.
