… In Dialogue… is an arrangement of Differing
Dialogues, which was composed in 2009 and revised in 2011
for low flutes specialist Peter Sheridan. The origins of
Differing Dialogues lie in the idea of loops and looping
for the low flute family, with a solo part for bass flute sitting
between these loops, and developing through changes in texture
It is also an exploration of palindromic rhythmic structures as exemplified in the opening sequence. I was asked by flutist, Alice Bennett, to arrange the piece for a concert titled 'Sonic Landscapes' on November 24th, 2013, and to add a percussion part. The idea of … In Dialogue… is a non-loop based version of Differing Dialogues. The loops are still there, but now they are integrated into the texture, moving between the flutes and being
supported by percussion.
Instrumentation: Alto flute, bass flute, contrabass flute, sub-contrabass flute, percussion (vibraphone and snare drum).
Duration: 5 min.
