"Written in June 1997, THE BLUE OF NEPTUNE was inspired by a satellite photograph of the planet Neptune which captured the composer's attention and imagination. This photo portrayed the planet's rich deep blue cloud cover with breathtaking clarity....

...playing this piece as intended requires that the players be patient, slowing their own internal speeds way down, letting go of feelings of time as we are used to experiencing it, and allowing oneself to drift into the vast ocean of the blue of Neptune.... From inside this connection, it is no mystery that our mythological god Neptune rules from the depths of the ocean....."
