The piece draws metaphorical substance from the movements of air currents: spiralling eddies, flowing breezes, sudden gusts, expanses of calm disrupted by turbulent cross-currents. The title is taken from an essay by François Bayle, which discusses the phenomenology of musical experience in richly poetic language. While not to be taken literally, this phrase reflects the play of energies in the music, and the transfer of energy between different regions, an evanescent surface, subject to unseen subterranean forces.
