The work is entitled "Sound of Light," and is by Richard C. Elliott.
In 2008, voters in the three-county area that Sounder primarily

present route will go south beyond the Airport to Federal Way, and
north beyond the University of Washington to Northgate and
Snohomish County, if current plans come to fruition. And a line will operate across
Lake Washington through Bellevue and out to Redmond.
