about

The idea of this piece is about being underwater and scales. For the first part I started thinking about krill, small crustaceans that are toward the bottom of the food chain upon which so many underwater creatures depend (a blue whale can consume up to four tons of krill each day). Without krill an ecosystem can collapse, so searching for krill is as important as living.

For the scales portion I decided to create my own scale, holding eight notes instead of the common seven notes in most scales. A Bb C Db Eb E F# G Each note within the piece holds to one of these eight, the result being a meandering foray through the depths filled with creatures seeking sustenance.
