Cirrus was written to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Wellington Youth Sinfonietta.

While writing, I was learning to sail and learning to better understand the weather. Often the blue sky would be streaked with cirrus; high cloud made of tiny ice particles, dancing to a secret wind. Before long, troops of cumulus would march beneath the cirrus, followed by towers of cumulonimbus and umbrellas.

In writing this piece, I have sought to express the fragility, beauty, and inexorable movement of the clouds, particularly Cirrus.
