Airborn Sand was inspired when I spent a typical Tampa hurricane at the student center, a large building with floor-to-ceiling glass. As I watched the hurricane pass, a newscaster on the TV talked about airborne sand being whipped about on the shores and the music came to life for this delightful piece. I didn’t have my computer with me, so I painstakingly sketched the score out in pencil. Each note a grain of sand flying about.
Performers are welcome to improvise off the notes of this piece and to interpret the notes, phrasing and markings as they wish. They can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any performance questions. I recommend listening to the recording to help with interpretation.
