For organ. This is my second piece for organ. Wrestling with this powerful instrument was a "power" struggle indeed — hence the double meaning of the title. Ideas that are instantly clear on the piano are not on the organ so I found myself trying to get at the "power" of the instrument — both soft and loud — from a different point of view. The complex overtones created by the pipes in combination with the big space for reverberation produces a complex timbral challenge for any composer who is not an organist. Power Dance is about 9 minutes long and is dedicated with appreciation to organist Gail Archer.— Joan Tower
