(face à moi)


Miniature for piccolo solo (ca.3’30”) (2010/2011/rev. 2018)

(face à moi) for piccolo solo was written in 2010. The whole composition is dominated by a single musical idea, in which short notes alternate each other in a seemingly formless order. From time to time, this musical idea is interrupted by short fragments with a clearly different character. Slowly, the initial musical idea transforms. The approach of the texture and the timbre possibilities of the piccolo flute becomes more complex, and the different cells and fragments are mixed and being combined.
