Suite #1 in Five Movements
The five movements reflect a variety of moods, and was intended to represent a day in a child’s life. The first movement begins with a slow awakening and then progresses throughout the “day,” ending with a return to sleep in the last movement, complete with a dream section. The first and last movements contain optional muted sections. It is recorded on John Stevens’ solo album Power.
