Brian Schober writes about his piece:

"Wind-space" for alto flute, bass clarinet and piano was composed for the group Palisades Virtuosi in response for a piece in memory of the events of 9-11. Although, the piece does not relate in any specific way to those events, it evokes the idea of empty and open spaces and the wind which passes through, as indicated by the title. The writing was greatly influenced by the Japanese bamboo flute or shakuhachi. The alto flute acts as a catalyst for the work in that the other instruments as commentators to it. The three performers are treated very independently of each other and rarely play together except in a few dramatic moments.
