A piano piece of beyond diploma difficulty. It depicts stormy conditions on the Desert Road which runs through the central North Island of New Zealand, passing through a large, elevated tract of barren land franked by three large mountains. The terrain produces some awe-inspiring displays of nature and the ancient Maori people crossed this land only when absolutely necessary. They called the area "Rangipo" (Dark Sky).
