    Canyon Shadows

    For Native American flute, C flute and percussion. "Canyon Shadows was inspired by the haunting canyons of the American Southwest, in particular, the famous, breathtaking Grand Canyon. This work combines several overlapping spheres: those of the native flute/silver flute; native music/"western" music; and sounds of nature/notated music. It was my challenge to meld these varied elements into a whole. In my mind's eye I saw a band of native ancestors searching for a home, finding a canyon and moving in. In the third movement their calls echo across the canyon. There is a celebration, and the piece ends with dusk settling in, with chirps and murmers, bats, and memories." - Katherine Hoover
