The ghostly apparitions of two tall vessels, pass, quite literally, like ships in the night. A burning streak of orange paint along the water line of one is the only sign of life. Atop a calm, black sea their masts and rigging appear skeletal against a streaky night sky as the boats seem almost to pass through one another. The title of a well-known bossanova folk song, Encontros e Despendidas (’meetings and goodbyes’) provides an appropriately romantic subtitle for this otherworldly composition.
