Originally composed during a hurricane in South Florida. Inspired by a news reporter's comments about "Airborne sand" whipping through her hair, the composer decided to write a work for flute that imitated the movements of sand whirling on a beach during a hurricane. It was subsequently performed at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
