As I was walking home one evening at dusk I looked up at the sky and saw the first stars appear at night. A feeling of wonder came over me as I realized the great distance between myself and these points of light and it was a reminder of the vastness of the universe. This experience inspired the opening sound of the piece and from there the music takes a journey of it’s own.
