Preview of New Commissioned Compositions for 2023: Works in Progress for Solo Flute


Preview of new score for solo Flute inspired by Piero Manzoni, Fortunato Depero, Aldo Tambellini, Mimmo Rotella and the Arte Povera movement.  This tablature was born from a need for separation from the traditional.  This notation in no way relates to aesthetic fantasies or a quest for fashionable effects, but concern compositional facts that imply an entirely new kind of musical interpretation.

In this work as many of my compositions, the way the visual elements act upon each other is like a molecular process that combines images of transformations that occur in the real world: images of mathematical or logical transformations; multiplication of visual representations, affiliations between pairs of divergent materials; existence and absence of materials and of tactile adaptations.

I do not suggest that the art of composition is really a science of measurement and precision. I do think that any work demands precision of judgment.   It is precision that informs both the performer and the listener.
