This programmatic work represents the various skies that are above the Earth. At the beginning of this piece, the sky motive is presented very plainly in the alto flute with light accompaniment. I bring this motive back at various points throughout the work in order to show how, though the sky is ever present, it is not always the same. For example, the sky can be bright, cloudy, stormy, or otherwise. In this work, I also use exoticism, the practice of taking elements of music from other cultures and incorporating them into the music of one’s own culture. I use elements of Native American music such as the low flute, modern Celtic folk music including frequent penny whistle flourishes and Celtic harp solos, Arabesque embellishments, and Spanish-inspired guitar accompaniment in order to show how the skies are a common connection between all of the peoples of Earth.
