Still a work in progress, this version includes a unison part for alto flute and English horn, and some other winds, strings, and balloon drums. Still working on the density. It’s a bit busy now.
Erigeron compositus is the latin name for Alpine Daisy. It’s all over Western Washington in late August. The second half of the title is taken from a quote in Faulkner’s Sound and the Fury:
And I will look down and see my murmuring bones and the deep water like wind, like a roof of wind, and after a long time they cannot distinguish even bones upon the lonely and inviolate sand.
