Score and Parts


A musical description of fire and its hunger. It begins as embers of coal and wood glowing with radiant danger-a soft sustained and ominous sound. Slowly, fuel is added to the potential of flame and slowly catches fire, one flicker at a time until it builds into a raging inferno of an Afro-Cuban styled groove.
