Sheet Music: Score
Streamforms : for amplified bass flute / Dominik Karski.
by Dominik Karski (2003)
The bass flute solo streamforms is centred on exploration of the instrument's sound through physicality of performance: the focus on the player-instrument relationship is the primary source of the musical substance. The musical territory that the work occupies is that of quasi-indeterminate and elusive sound-types and timbres undergoing a continuous transition; this type of material gradually establishes a sound-structure that evolves in a very fluid and organic manner. At the core of the work is a preoccupation with formal shapes that are not absolutely defined, but are constantly evolving, while the material remains coherent (though not predictable, or governed by a system). The ultimate aim that drives the musical continuum is the experience of a formal structure that constantly remains within the process of becoming… perhaps it is a reflection of the ever-transforming state of physical beings and their temporary existence.
