The title is "Continental Divide" and it has nothing to do with tectonic plates, but is another word for "Watershed".
It is the place where the the water flows in opposite directions. For example, when you drive up a mountain, the water flows downwards, the same does it when you drive down the other side. On top there is usually a water, and it is in this water, or musical idea if you like,
that it is a continental divide. What I intend is that in this piece there are some musical motifs that change character and direction. They can be in the foreground and carry the play, or they may be in the background as a countermeasure. It can also be from horizontal lines to vertical.
Or rhythmical patterns that don´t find their match until far into the piece.
