Landscape Prelude is imbued with the spirit of New Zealand's west coast on a still day. The accompanying poem begins:

"barely stirs the dark ripple
through liquid bell-tones
ancient echoes
of grey-green tree-gods
high sky
wild crags and rocks
the deep earth gong beats..."

A less than reassuring human element also enters the picture...
