The 3rd movement is dedicated to the memory of Jordan Satin my nephew and the BACO Boys, four 19 year old life-time camp friends, (counselors -waterfront lifeguards) "this band of brothers" heros all who died when one fell into what used to be a favorite watering hole below a tranquil waterfall, that when ravaged by 3 days of rain, unknowingly became a whirlpool of death that dragged each boy down as they tried to save each other. The symbolism of this tragedy is seen throughout the third movement and their ultimate resurrection beyond "lifted by an angel...spirits rising" shortly after Jordan's theme appears near the end of the 3rd movement. Musically, up until 16.5 minutes a full musical theme "A Song for Jordan" has not been heard. Likewise, the sequencing of images and their interplay with the music are very loosely woven together until Jordan's Theme appears in image and melody which brings a dramatic unison and spiritual closure to the entire composition.
