Odpływ (‘Ebb tide’) was commissioned by The State Choir Latvija for their Amber Vein choral programme, which examined historical amber trade routes through the poetry of twelve internationally recognized poets from a variety of countries, and compositions by twelve Latvian composers.

While writing this work I tried to drill down into the Polish language, phonetically shaping every syllable of every word in this laconic poem. Alongside my work with phonetic colours and their symbolic similarities in music, I came to wonder at the beauty of amber and appreciate the historical significance of the ancient amber trade routes. It is through these routes that amber from the Baltic Sea came to Rome and, in all likelihood, entered the historical record through the work of Pliny the Elder.
