As a soothing legato study in broken chords, played hand-over-hand, and utilizing most of the keyboard, this composition will paint a musical picture of gently floating clouds. There will be the use of overlapping pedal technique, accidentals, long flowing phrases, and dynamics that are on the "soft" side.
