In the Wind explores the concept of how the wind constantly changes and morphs, whether it's by speed or direction. As the trajectory of the show progresses, the music changes with the wind, moving back and forth between gentle zephyrs and huge gusts, culminating in a powerful climax as the wind becomes all-powerful.
