This is the third movement of the composition "Saga of the White Mountains." Scored for strings, timpani, solo flute and small percussion, the composition is not set in any particular key, but moves freely between modes, frequently using tone clusters rather than traditional chords. Several rhythmic and melodic motifs are important. The most prominent is the "mountain" rhythmic impulse of a short note on the downbeat followed immediately by a held tone. Other thematic elements include a drum beat-like melody having a primitive character; an upward rising theme in open fifths; and a "dropping third" pattern. The remaining two movements will also be placed in Score Exchange as time permits. As with all my pieces on Score Exchange, it is best heard from the MP3 file.
