This single-movement piece takes the title of a poem that it sets, The Ocean Breathes, by Robb A. Kopp:

cymbals crash with frothy force
from dark shadows lurk jagged claws
volcanic sand gritty and coarse
moon beams off a barnacle laced jug
from dark shadows lurk jagged claws
shinny minnows in steady breaths
moon beams off a barnacle laced jug
in secluded pools the jelly fish dance
shinny minnows in steady breaths
volcanic sand gritty and coarse
in secluded pools the jelly fish dance
cymbals crash with frothy force

The set of pitches used in this composition is obtained from an approximation of the pitch spectrum of a 16’ cymbal. Rhythmic cycles for the sounding of each of the three cymbals are also devised using arithmetic progressions corresponding to the proportion of their sizes (7’, 13’, 16’).
