The Seventh Wave is a collection of four connected pieces, which are inspired by the myth and symbolism of a tidal cycle. Musically speaking the individual pieces do not seek to represent the physical characteristics of the tidal cycle as such, but are more concerned with a response to the spiritual and emotional symbolism that are inherent in such an event.  Harmonically ambiguous and rhythmically fluid, these pieces explore a wide range of the alto flute’s capabilities. These four fairly large scale movements make a great challenge for an adventurous player.
