Composer's Note:

Adrian Foster reconstructed one of Saito's lost subaqueous improvisations, giving it the name "The Great Flood." Here, relentless arpeggiated figures summon a torrential rainfall, evoking water in its most awe-inspiring and dreadful states. The deluge waxes and wanes in intensity through sudden textural and tonal shifts in the organ part. All the while this builds to a point of total saturation, where swirling walls of superimposed organ sound overtake the backdrop of pouring rain.
