about

Paths Not Taken
for alto flute, tuned flower pots, and contrabass in 19-tone equal temperment.

Paths Not Taken has three movements which parallel each other in form. In each movement, a simple melody at the beginning is fragmented and reconstructed to create a collective, gamelon-like texture at the end. As the piece progresses, its melodies are distilled to harmonic essences which become more and more skeletal.
