About Silent Ocean

The title Silent Ocean suggests serenity of the ocean, images of a pale blue and orange color sky blending the sound of the trumpet.

It consists of three pieces. The first piece weaves the texture of sounds like waves with combinations of 7/8 and 5/8 rhythms. The second, subtitled Love Song, symbolizes motherhood of the ocean. The final piece suggests reflection of light on waves by the repetitive piano texture while the trumpet sustains long tones and creates various colors using enharmonics.
