"Lamination" (2003) for solo flute

Lamination was written for a concert at the ocean beach pier. It plays with attention. You hear all the sounds in your environment, but only notice those you attend to. Sometimes the flute ignores the environment; sometimes it directly interacts with environmental sounds; sometimes it leaves space for your attention to drift; sometimes forceful environmental sounds redirect the course of the piece.



Performed on May 4, 2003, by Reiko Manabe at the Spring Festival of New Music (Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego)
