AIR (2018) indeterminate duration
for shinobue
Programme Notes:

Air, composed in 2018 for shinobue (or traverso) and with an indeterminate duration, was imagined as a sonic mirror gallery visited with utter freedom. By its very design, this work marks the discovery of a new rhythmic principle whereby the performer’s momentary expression governs the pace of performance and the birth of a new stochastic technique of composition analogous to a rotating double-arm mechanism.
