Lost Geometry

for wind ensemble of 41 players (2006)


5(4=picc, 5=d/al.fl.).4(4=eng. hrn).6(5=EbCl,6=bscl).3(3=ctbn). 2alsx.tnsx.barsx – – 5 perc., Harp, Piano


Lost Geometry was to be part of a larger work in three movements, Ventiform. However, having completed Lost Geometry, I decided to make it a standalone work. With this work, I decided to address an issue constitutive of the large majority of the instruments that make up a wind ensemble: breathing. Throughout the piece I used air sounds of various timbres, and I intended them to be extension of ordinary instrumental sounds.
