The outer movements were designed with my structural method of a spiral of golden rectangles, and were more "grown" than based on a narrative.. This technique begins with a unit of music just one bar long, which is grown, like an unfolding flower, through the golden ratio, into successive longer pieces, each of which has integrity and can stand by itself.
The middle movement was partly written on a viewing platform at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, and and the slow walking pace of the elephants lumbering to the waterhole, in a timeless procession, may have entered the music.
