I wrote this miniature when I was spending a lot of time studying the music of Alban Berg, especially his piano sonata which is one of the great piano masterpieces of the 20th century (I think he was 19 when he wrote it). The music of Schoenberg and Webern never really did much for me, but Berg really nailed the style. So, you might consider this piece to be an homage to Berg.
I love Blue Herons - they are a fascinating, solitary animal and we have had at least one of them living near the pond behind my house for at least 30 years. At one point, there was a pair living here - they apparently mate for life. They chase off any other big birds that come around and "our" Blue Heron ran off a large white egret last summer. Lately, a bald eagle has been coming around but the heron doesn't seem to bother it.
This is my corona virus quarantine piece - maybe I'll do some more over the coming days or weeks. I wrote this yesterday and completed production this morning. I have been dying to find a use for Cinematique's Clashing Rails and Neon Tubes along with Native Instruments' Una Corda piano and this piece provided the perfect opportunity.
