Damhsa Sa Gaoth, translated “Dancing in the Wind”, is a Celtic fantasy for harp, and the second piece I’ve written based upon my love and fascination with Irish music. When writing this piece, I had no intentions of form and simply followed where my mind went next. The result is a free-form exploration of a few simple melodies, figures, and textures using the ethereal sounds of the harp.
