The 3rd Dominion

This is a shorter piece at about 4 mins 20, and is the completed version of the "happy new year" post  below, who's widget isn't working. It can also be listened to for free, or downloaded for a small fee at Bandcamp here.

The piece was originally inspired by seeing some dolphins swimming off the coast of Kintyre in Scotland, whilst on a short break staying here, which was pretty awesome (corny as it is, sometimes only 'awesome' will do!). I tried to get the twinkling of the sea shimmering at the start of the piece, and the flutey arpeggios are supposed to be the arched leaps of the dolphins breaking out of the sea.

The 3rd Dominion of Clive Barker's book "Imajica", is where the goddess Tishallule (I think that's the correct spelling) inhabits a body of water known as "The Cradle". She causes the waters of the Cradle to solidy under cover of cloud and re-liquify at the touch of the Sun.

I fancy that the music represents that moment transformation, but that's probably in my own head. Make of it what you will, but I hope you enjoy it.

As always, comments and constructive criticism is welcome.
