"We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life,
a better world, beyond the horizon."

New Horizons

Who hasn't been enchanted by an amazingly vivid sunset on the horizon? Witnessing a blaze of red and orange splash across the sky and the sun slowly turning a deeper shade of red as it sinks below the distant horizon is a mesmerizing experience. As the day ends in a blaze of glory, the experience may conjure up thoughts of starting the next day afresh with a renewed conviction on undertaking a different direction in your life that you've been contemplating.

New horizons can bring hope and passion back into your life. As Christopher McCandless enthusiastically states: “The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

About the Music
Key changes in this composition, like sunsets over new horizons, bring refreshing change. The A section is in A minor, the B section modulates to C major and the C section is a pastiche of modern harmony in fourths. The Native American Bass flute is featured. Studio effects were added to the flute on the solo section.
