On a trip to an island off of Texas, I spent some time at an isolated beach on a cloudy day. The birds, waves, and palms created a counterpoint that I could not resist. I had to try and capture it in a piece. It is rather long, because the wonderful effect did not come over me until I became part of the wonderful synergy. The birds were walking in two different patterns .. 6/4 and 5/4 -- always with the accent on the next to last beat. This overlapping rhythmic counterpoint between the multiple number of birds was fascinating in and of itself; mixed with the varied sounds of the waves, it was spellbinding. I sent a youtube to the chamber of commerce, and received a wonderful reply.
