Shallow Sea

“The idea for this piece stemmed from some lyrics that an acquaintance wrote. What inspired me was that when I read what she had written about this thing, "Shallow Sea," I thought of something different from what she described - something that looked like a normal sea, with the vastness of an ocean, but you could actually walk through it because it was so shallow. This image is also reflected in the actual chord structure.” (Reaching For The Uncommon Chord p. 60)
