The objective for this Sonata was to embrace collaborations
between composers and performers working together on psychical
and mental inabilities and extra-abilities incorporated into
musical textures. In 2015 the composer presented the manuscript
of Song of the Shaman accompanied by the following
I treated the three octaves of the flute as symbolic:
middle octave- the Shaman sings, in our world
lower octave- he travels to the nether regions
upper octave- he flies in a bird/spirit body.
Musically, this meant that a different kind of music had to be conceived for each region,and that is essentially what goes on in the Sonata.
