Deepening into Teal is inspired by the texture and movement of the sea, where repetitive melodic lines create an immersive effect, and as it goes deeper you can even find blurry sounds of the whalesongs.
This mass of sound may seem static at times, but it is a complex organism full of life inside when you pay attention to the little details.
Teal has also a synesthetic meaning, as that is the colour the composer sees when he hears an F# major chord, which is the main chord you can listen to throughout the piece.
