Elementary is an orchestral work inspired by nature in three sections. The first (Fire) draws from pointillistic orchestration and rouses a feeling of fickleness intermixed with potential destruction. The middle transition (Smoke) begins the layering of foggy timbres into a large harmonic web. A sweeping harp solo leads to the third section (Water), which develops this layering into a fluid gestures and languid suspensions to transcend all sensations from the world above.
