This composition premiered at the “Accademia Filarmonica Romana,” Rome Italy on 29 June 2023 with the dance choreography of Lisa Naugle. The score creates a quality of “freedom in time” for the dancer while the flute performer has the opportunity to improvise extended techniques in select places with the fixed electronic sounds. Negligible rhythms create a sensation of merged fluid motion in time while the flutist performs a wind-scape of pitch and breath that continues motion forward without the attachment to significant melodies or meter.
