The titles of each of the three pieces are fairly clear on what each movement is about. The idea for this piece came from a trip I took with family to Gisborne and the East Coast. The atmosphere of region struck me as being quite unique. The subjects were chosen for no particular reason other than they made a deep impression on me, especially driving through the town of Tokomaru Bay, which is sadly derelict, the more so for having such a proud and industrious past. Tairawhiti was written for Donald Nichols to take to a clarinet conference in Oklahoma. Originally the piece was intended for Donald to double chalemeau with the E flat clarinet.
