This orchestral piece musically re-enacts the experiences of a skydiver. The piece begins with a fanfare. The mood quickly changes to minor and preparations for the parachute jump begin. Passionate melodies alternate with dramatic pieces. Suddenly there is the engine of an airplane and a threatening atmosphere is created. The door opens and "the skydiver" has to deal with the fear. At the jump, only a single tone is left and the engine sounds disappear more and more. At the free fall, feelings of happiness suddenly arise. "The skydiver" has the feeling of flying. After a few seconds, the parachute opens and the skydiver whirls through the air. The impressions overlap and different, upbeat parts of the music quickly alternate. Later, the music becomes calmer and "the skydiver" enjoys the quiet floating through the air. Some strange harmonies illustrate the surreal situation. Later, the melodies symbolize the landing. With the onset of percussion, both legs touch the ground again. In Major, the first theme is played again as a fanfare and it ends the work in a bombastic final section.

This composition was created with the help of a contribution from the Music Investment Fund, an initiative of Buma/Stemra in cooperation with Voi©e, the Copyright Interests Federation and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science in the Netherlands.
