Pale Sun over Cold Land uses as its form an improvisatory melody over a simple, descending chord progression. In the long middle solo, elements of contemporary Western and Eastern musics are combined in synchronicity, bringing the emotional contour of the overall work toward a close with yearning and optimism.
