for: solo flute
duration: 4 minutes
commissioned and premiered by Valerie Peters, March 1987
This early piece for flute owes its existence to one of the most famous pieces for solo flute, Density 21.5 by Edgard Varese. Looking back on it after 30 years, I honestly don’t remember what element of Density I used as a starting point…I just remember paying homage to Varese with this piece.
