A Descent into the Maelström
When I was young I read a lot of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales, including “A Descent into the Maelström”, a short story in which “a man recounts how he survived a shipwreck and a whirlpool” (Wikipedia). As often was the case with Poe's work, the tale impressed me very much.
When I wrote this little Grundgestalt, the music told me of Poe's tale — therefore it was only natural to give it the same title.
The orchestration is distorted guitar and uduhachi flute in unison, double bass, and drums.
