Contemporary Canadian composer Alexina Louie was commissioned to write this piece for advanced solo piano by the Canadian Arts Council for the Canadian Music Competitions 1991. It is based on a Zen poem and shows her uniquely personal and expressive style which is rooted in a blend of east and west. The piece has light, shimmering sections that require an agile pianistic touch, as well as forceful hammered effects in the lowest register.
