The initial arpeggios of the piece create an oscillating and fluctuating texture that in some ways emulates movement of the seas. Once a clear melody emerges from underneath that texture, the piece turns into a minor tonality dark Waltz. The harmonic language of the piece draws both from modern Tango (specifically Astor Piazzolla’s music) as well as from guitarist Bill Frisell’s compositions which I really admire for their minimalistic construction.
