Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
It's about the beauty and terror of the sea.
The crossed hands techniques in the first and last section, and the melodies are more difficult than they seem when you first look at the work and the speeds I suggest are crucial to the piece making musical sense.

Dedication note: Dedicated to Philip Howe
Commission note: Commissioned by ABC Radio FM for a radio play
First performance: by Sarah De Jong — 1999. ABC Radio recording studio
The composer notes:
I developed my crossed hands technique when I got RSI and had to complete a complicated and fast piano work. I've loved the intricacy you can get with the technique ever since.
