This is written for flute (doubling alto flute) and percussion (vibraphone, temple blocks and bongos) and was written in 2011. The title is derived from having lived the Karoo region of South Africa since September 2007.
Lasting just over 5 minutes, the piece opens with flute and temple blocks alternating with accelerating and decelerating phrases respectively. Later, the vibraphone and flute are in similar dialogue. A fast rhythmic section follows with the flute initially taking the main melodic idea with bongo accompaniment, but later the vibraphone takes up the melody. The ideas are developed before the initial phrases are heard. The piece ends calmly with alto flute and vibraphone, played with a cello bow.
