The Horizon From Owhiro Bay (2007) will appeal to pianists keen to build up an eclectic repertoire, as this work integrates Javanese slendro musical systems and stylistic elements associated with the French impressionist composers. A musical depiction of the “moody depths” of New Zealand’s Owhiro Bay and Cook Strait, its simple arching structure begins and ends with a repeated two-note motif, which serves as a literal horizon as the pianist performs surrounding ascending and descending figures.
