The Sea of the Edge is one of the oceans of the moon. While much music depicts the moon romantically, from the safe distance of the Earth – here the cold, desolate lunar landscape is placed in the foreground.

The title also refers to ‘Music on the Edge’ who commissioned the piece for Susie Hodder-Williams. Susie gave the first performance at the Guildford International Music Festival on 21st March 2011; she has recorded the piece on Northern Lights (FMRCD303-0311 © 2011).
