The Seasons (2012)

This piece was made for the 15 Minutes of Fame competition, thus it is only a minute long. I'm not usually interested in program music, but things fell together so well here that I couldn't resist finishing the piece. Winter is represented by a long pause without sounds; other seasons are melodic lines, sometimes painting rain, or birdsong, or other signs of the seasons. There are twelve bars in the piece, and various internal links that further reinforce the idea of the annual cycle.
