The Wind that Cradles the Clouds  for solo marimba (5 oct.)


This piece, as the title suggests, was composed with the clouds and the sky in mind. At first, it
started out as an improvisation that I would play around with to escape a very busy schedule,
but as time moved on and the widespread panic of COVID-19 grew, the piece’s meaning was
moulded into something else. Now, I like to think that this piece is about a search for a silver
lining amongst hardship; that is to find comfort and a clearing in a sky full of clouds.

The Wind that Cradles the Clouds was premiered on Youtube by Joey Eng on the 26th of
March, 2020.
