Commissioned by Matthew Marshall, this short piece for solo guitar evokes one of those unusual, hot summery evenings in the deep south of New Zealand, where the sun never seems to set, and the sky has strange colours. The slow, sultry opening gives way to a sensual dance-like section, ending with a more up-beat and slightly bluesy coda.
