Tidal Light by Wesley Hixson. Tidal Light for 3 guitars, was written by Avanti Guitar Trio guitarist/composer Wesley Hixson. Inspired by the popular Youtube video Flaring Up, Surfing with Flare, featuring world renowned surfer Bruce Irons, Tidal Light, is an aural impression of ocean sounds, from the shushing rhythm of tidal waters overlaying the shoreline to the effervescence of whitecaps crashing. A delicate main theme is shared between two guitars as one echoes the other while the third guitar supports with a rolling ostinato. In Flaring Up, surfer Bruce Irons experiments with road flares strapped to the back of his surfboard as he catches a wave at twilight creating an ethereal light show.
