I used to be a white water guide in West Virginia on the Cheat River. The canyon was around 11 miles long and had mostly class 4 and class 5 rapids. For those who don't know what that means....
Class 1 rapids are a calm mirror like surface
Class 5 rapids have 5+ feet drops and swells
Class 6 means there is a strong possibility of death.
Anyway, this piece starts out with the little riffles and proceeds to the larger rapids.

Here is the MP3
Comments are greatly appreciated. This is much more tonal than a lot of my works previously posted.
I forgot that I prepared some movements of a string quartet to be ready for posting last night, so I will give a little teaser here with movement 2 of 4. I will explain the title and the meaning of the piece when I post the full 4 movements.
