Pavan is one of a collection of pieces which draw on material written for David Bintley's ballet of Shakespeare's The Tempest.

 

It appears in the ballet as a solo for the Goddess Iris. She represents air and sky, birdsong, zephyrs and gentle rain.

 

It was commissioned by sound for the Aberdeen Harp Book with the support of soundbytes investor Lane Wealth Management, and first performed by Ruth Wall as part of the Aberdeen sound festival, in October 2016.
