Score & Part

Fragments : for flute ensemble / Vincent Giles.

Library shelf no. 785.83219/GIL 2 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

It is a composition that takes a series of musical fragments, which, discreetly, demonstrate two main musical themes, which are transformed and re-presented throughout the work. These fragments are arranged as independent "sound masses", much in the same way as electroacoustic music, interacting differently according to what sounds they are placed with. The piece is designed to be antiphonic, for stereo perception and the players are split up accordingly, the parts interact from left to right and vice-versa.
