Description: Snow Drifts is one of the more energetic pieces from my CD Late Frost, written mostly in a quick 5/8. It is written in the Dorian mode, and the harmony is generally d-minor and G-Major. In the middle section, the notes of the opening figure gradually drop off and the meter changes to 2/4. A melody comes in (until now it has been devoid of melody), ushering in a change to a new harmonic pattern of F-Major and G-Major. The opening figure returns at the end, as does the d-minor harmony. For the video, I made an improvised digital painting in ArtRage.
