Quick Overview

As the title implies, this piece conveys composer Alan Lee Silva's imaginative take on the beauty of the Puget Sound off the coast of Washington state. The piece has many of the compositional techniques you have come to know and love in the pieces of Silva. There are driving rhythms, effortlessly flowing melodies, beautiful harmonic colors and just an overwhelming sense that the piece is exactly as it should be. This is true mark of a master composer, one who can make the music have a sense of inevitablity and sound just right.
