This piece was composed by my son Mark sometime in the 1990s. It was conceived originally as an untitled piano piece; it was not written out, but was something he simply enjoyed playing whenever he sat down at a piano.

The piece acquired its current form when I re-imagined the piece for recorder ensemble and requested it be written down. From that version, I adapted the piece to suit a recorder quartet, and gave it the present title.

A steady tempo is required throughout most of the piece, as well as a steady breath pressure. This is a good exercise in tuning, especially for some of the more  unusual chords. For example, the “chords” in measure 7 and 8 are DEFG followed by ABCD —essentially expanded tone clusters. Play them with confidence! (text continued in download)
