Solo for baroque flute (Flute d’Amour [A=415Hz]) and fixed media.
2018-0-07 Iklectik, London – Carla Rees – first performance
Palimpsest is a handwriting, usually on parchment, whose text was scraped and washed away to be replaced with a new one.
The recorded sounds consists of manipulated scratch sounds. The flute has two tonal layers (pentatonic/major scale) to relate to, and there is a gradual movement from the pentatonic to the major scale. At the end, the short melody is played, which is the origin of all other notes.
