The four movements represent my thoughts about Canada and its people.

1. March for the Young: Canada is a young nation and I imagined it
beginning its journey towards nation status as a child growing up and
learning how to defend itself through play. The image of Canadian boys
playing soldiers and marching is important in this movement.

2. The Great White Cold: I imagined the bitter freezing cold and icy
beauty of Canadian winters (not that I have ever experienced such) and I
used some slightly unusual techniques to create the impression of a
cold wind blowing across the arctic scenery.

3. Campfire Songs: I had this vision of the great outdoors with
Canadian families going camping in the mountainous regions sitting round
their campfire at night and singing songs. I had no idea at the time
whether Canadians were campfire songers or what kinds of songs they
might choose, so I selected a number of ’folk’ songs from the “Great
Canadian Tune Book” and incorporated them into this movement.

4. The New Found Land: This movement moves to Canada’s eastern
seaboard and I imagined new emigrants to the country arriving at a busy
harbour and seeing all the hustle and bustle of a lively community and
sea port. With some difficulty the debarkees find their land legs but
then become absorbed in the lively new world they have moved to.
