There are five movements which take the form of an Incrementa. Incrementa is my term for a rhythmic or melodic aspect of the music that forms an increasing or decreasing incremental pattern. For example in movt. No. 7 (The Tide) each measure increases by one beat with 'the ebb of the tide', and decreases by one beat with the 'tidal flood'. In movt. No. 2 contiguous sections of the music are composed of consecutive diatonic tonal patterns of 2, 3, 4 up to 7 beamed notes respectively.

Each movement is followed by a pause of only 1 to 2 seconds.
