for solo flute
About the piece
This piece was composed on material from a recording of a voice. I had extracted the speech melody using (at the time) sophisticated computer software, and got a rich material, that I wanted to use as themes or such. The result is that it shifts from a stubbornly reappearing melody and a more flowing, organic music.
Another aspect of composing was that I also wanted the piece to somehow reflect the personality of the flutist to whom I wrote the piece.
First performed in Copenhagen, may 2001 by Malin Sommanš (flute).
