Ceo (“kayo”), Gaelic for fog or mist, is a short piece for piano trio. It was inspired by the instruments, mainly the perfect fifths of open strings and the contrast between the piano's discrete pitches and the strings' ability to glissandi. To me, the piece took on a folk-like character, evocative of hiking in the hills of Ireland or Appalachia.
