Aspledon Undae

The following inscription is found at the head of the score:
The Aspledon Undae is a dune sea on the planet Mars near the Martian North Pole. Its name is taken from Aspledon, the son of Poseidon.

my way is in the sand flowing between the shingle and the dune the summer rain rains on my life on me my life harrying fleeing to its beginning to its end
my peace is there in the receding mist when I may cease from treading these long shifting thresholds and live the space of a door that opens and shuts
- Samuel Beckett
