For Flute and Sound Projection (2012)

In betwixt, acoustic flute sounds are interwoven with their electro-acoustic derivatives. The multi-layered sound projection is based on instrumental sounds of the same origin. The title betwixt points at the in-between, the undetermined: it aims at a fusion of all musical components, to create an inseparable sonic unit. The flute part includes various extended techniques, such as multi-phonics, whistle tones and combinations of vocal and instrumental sounds. Within the (optional) music-theatrical realization of the piece the performer remains hidden behind a translucent screen, only to be visible throughout the piece as a slowly changing colored shadow. Thus, acoustic and visual sensations are separated and recombined within a controlled and minimal setting.
