Antelope Canyon is one of the most fascinating, mysterious, and beautiful places on Earth. Located just moments from Page Arizona, It is the probably the most famous example of a slot canyon in the world. The deep lower portion of the canyon was lost when the Glen Canyon Dam was built creating the vast reservoir known as Lake Powell. Thankfully the mid and upper reaches of Antelope Canyon were not effected and remain as beautiful and wonderful today as they have been for tens of thousands of years.
My new age score "Antelope Canyon" is inspired by the fascinating curves and gouges of the canyon, using stereo echoes to reproduce the "feel" of listening from within those natural walls. True music played within the canyon does have a very strong reverberation and a faint echo, but I enjoy the exaggeration applied in this beautiful piece of music.
