Powder Blue

for percussion duo

Powder Blue is inspired by an experience I had while driving up the Gulf Coast. Shortly before twilight, I emerged from a wooded area onto a causeway that crossed a bay-like body of water. The sky was the most beautiful shade of powdery periwinkle blue, and the surface of the water was so still that it reflected the sky in a way that made it seem to go on forever all around me. The music represents both the feelings I experienced in that moment, awe and astonishment at the scene, and the actual sky itself, soft and hazy, a blue sunset that faded into night.

Recording by arx duo.
