Work Overview

Respiro/Simple Ground was written for the Italian flautist, Alessio Bacci of the Gruppo Bruno Maderna who commissioned the work with assistance from the Australia Council for the Arts. It received its first performance in March 1994 in Switzerland. The rather elegiac and slow moving melody that is heard twice in the piece stands in contrast to more dense and chromatic music. Hence, the name Respiro/Simple Ground. On the one hand the work has music that is essentially simple and is based on a repeated chord pattern; on the other hand, music that is more unpredictable and which emerges from and disappears into breathy sighs.
