Description

The text for this piece comes from a writing exercise where one is given exactly sixty seconds to write about a single word; in this case, the word Stillness. The narrator observes a sunrise over the beach and likens it to the feeling of inspiration one uses to create art or music. The variety of texture, range, and smooth motion used throughout vividly illustrate the poetry. Seeking premiere/recording.
