About the work

The piece depicts the out-going tide, gradually revealing different aspects of the seashore.

First Performance: ELLSO, Feb 1995, Kemsing

Technical notes

A beautiful graphic score on the theme of the sea, with repeated patterns involving full orchestra interrupted by events involving groups of solo players – part notated, part improvised.
