The Atmosphere As a Fluid System suggests music which, while intricately interconnected, forms a gesture of fluid upward motion.  There is no prescribed traditional musical form in which the music develops.  Rather, as the description form the Encyclopaedia Britannica suggests, the work is a discovery of flow and motion as form – ever changing, as the forces which work with it exert their influences.

“Only in the present century has the atmosphere been seen as a large fluid system, the behaviour of which is primarily determined by the need for a poleward transfer of heat.”
