I felt like writing something to symbolize a sort of grandiose, wondrous landscape/scenery, such as what one would find in Alaskan fjords, for instance. I wanted something grand and sweeping, with an undertone of etherealism, and this is what I came up with. (I even used the beautifully breathy Shakuhachi!)

Written & recorded with Sibelius; mixed with Audacity.
