On Open Sky
On Open Sky is the first movement of a large orchestral work. The piece seeks to evoke the memory of a landscape, specially central Australia. The orchestration is the most important structural element, as sound color and texture propel the piece. There are two main sections separated by a short contrasting episode. The climax of the piece occurs at measure 100 and uses material derived from introduction.
