For  the nearly five years that I lived in Oregon I was transfixed by the  diverse beauty of the natural environment. So much of the landscape of  western Oregon is defined by the turbulent and volcanic forces beneath  the surface as well as the plethora of waters upon the surface. The  volatile magnificence of this place remains an active memory for me.  This work is not only a tribute to the wildness of Oregon but a  catharsis of that bit of the spirit of the place that refuses to leave  me at peace by any other means. The work poured forth once I got away  from the “tools of composition” and sat in the dark with just a piano.  When I came back a couple days later to actually notate some of these  sonic evocations, the material was just there waiting. The entire piece  was written in a very short time without the struggle that often  accompanies the process. Nothing and everything is as it seems in  Oregon…and all is in constant flux. To me that impossibility of  opposites is depicted in this work.
