Peskanov's Clouds, published by Classical Video Concepts, Inc. was inspired by the birth of the composer's first child, Rachael. Peskanov reflected on his own childhood growing up in the former Soviet Union, behind the "Iron Curtain." Often, he would sit by the window and watch clouds, intrigued by the way they could move anywhere they wished. In his imagination, clouds became the "Messengers of Freedom." Peskanov has recorded this piece on his album "Spirits of the Wind."
