Description: Commissioned by James Pellerite for his on-going creation of literature for the Native American flute. May also be played by concert flute. Part of the set of "Wind Songs", along with "It Was the Wind", this solo movement shows the struggle for dominance between conventional note pattern of the Native flute's scale and the interlopers (neighboring tones), shaping a drama of tonal beauty.
