Solar wind is made of the plasma of charged particles shooting out from the sun at speeds close to a million miles per hour. It interacts with our atmosphere in many interesting ways, including the creation of the Northern and Southern Lights. This composition is an interpretation of the journey that solar wind follows throughout the galaxy. Solar Wind was composed for the performance at the 2011 Cortona Sessions for New Music in Cortona, Italy.
