Prog. notes: This is the second piece in a series incorporating improvisation as part of the composition. The flautist is given certain freedom in deciding pitch, rhythm and timbre at different moments.
Live electronics interacts with the alto flute in many ways: by imitating the flute part, adding all kinds of sound effects that accumulate to create a cluster of sounds, and adding another dimension by tracking the flautist’s motion with webcam.
