This piece is a response to seeing millions of spider webs in morning mist at Mt Field National Park, Tasmania. The piece signifies repetition and restoration in nature. The first viola part was recorded as an improvisation shortly afterwards, the other parts layered later as improvised responses to the viola solo and to the experience of seeing the webs. A score may become available in future.
