Cloud Dances was influenced by the ever-changing, always beautiful clouds in the skies of Santa Fe. The dances reflect the visuals in different shapes, colors, and moods of the four time spans. Dance 1 introduces a variety of clouds sculpted by winds. Dance 2 combines a tango rhythm with occasional clave beats for a contemporary type of Latin cloud reverie. Dance 3 in 7/8 presents a somewhat unexpected cloud experience with a regular irregular beat. Dance 4 slowly smooths out a moving harmonic cloud cover across the horizons.
