Cloud Factory is an industrial piece, inspired by the huge steel factory TATA STEEL in IJmuiden - The Netherlands. The locals call the compound Cloud Factory because of the massive amounts of steam and smoke produced day and night. The opening section recalls the North Sea shore, the backdrop to the industrial site. The factory trains are heard next: they are transporting the raw materials to the various furnaces. A lengthy working process follows: obstinate pounding rhythms suggest the 24-hour activities of the factory. Towards the end, all wind players join the percussion section in making 'metal' sounds with empty cans and tin foil.
