Notes from the Twittersphere : flute solo
by Brett Dean (, this version: 2015)
'Notes from the Twittersphere' was composed as a gift for fellow Brisbane native, flautist Tim Munro on the occasion of his departure from eighth blackbird in 2015. Cast as a miniature - or a tiny collection of three miniatures - for solo piccolo, the piece was inspired by songs heard in the courtyard of my apartment in Berlin. Nothing too exotic: magpies, finches, starlings, etc. Being a surprisingly green city, Berlin has been described as an unlikely haven for birders and even twitchers out to spot rare birds. So, in writing three tiny pieces that started with birdsong, the title's link to the strange world of short missives that we live in with Twitter was there to be had.
