CLOUDS

This piece was commissioned by Kunstfactor the Netherlands.

This work has been written in a contemporary but accessible idiom. The composition describes three different clouds:

1. Cumulus
Cumulus clouds are a type of cloud with noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. They are often described as 'puffy' or 'cotton-like' in appearance. Cumulus clouds mostly forecasts nice, sunny weather.

2. Cirrocumulus
Cirrocumulus clouds are high-altitude clouds that usually occur at an altitude of 6 km to 10 km. Although the term cirrocumulus refers to each cloud, it is typically also used to refer to an entire patch of cirrocumulus. This kind of clouds mostly forecast rainy, stormy weather.

3. Cumulonimbus
Cumulonimbus is a type of cloud that is tall, dense, and involved in thunderstorms and other intense weather. It will be no surprise that thunder and lightning are clearly audible in this third part of 'Clouds'.
