Footsteps Footsteps
There is much we know, and do not know, about the past and the future...

As an avant-garde twenty-first century expression of electronic music, Footsteps departs from contemporary themes.  It is powerful, maybe even mesmerizing.  Look for colors, look for emotion, but don't look for melody. There isn't any.

Footsteps was composed and performed by Peggy Still Johnson.  Barry Richman: guitar - (The Big Bang) and Peggy Chatfield: flute (Creation).
