For solo piano
Duration: 5 minutes
This solo piano work was inspired by the balanced stone sculptures of a friend in Washington State, built along the shore of the Columbia River. Musically, I have tried to give narrative to this idea by stacking pitches upon each other in ascending order, and then letting them fall back down after working them into a concrete phrase or motive. The interval of a perfect fifth is presented as a representation of balance, and many phrases work towards or within that interval.
