Alto Flute and Electronics. 
Roy Amotz Flute.

In this work, I explored the idea of a granulation (segmented sound), that becomes denser until a complete convergence – a long note.
This idea drives also from the metaphor of the natural bouncing of a rubber material.
The idea can be found in the macro – the general form of the piece, and in the micro – the construction of an individual sound.
The work was written in collaboration with Paolo Vignaroli, and premiered by Cedric Jullion from Cairn Ensemble in Blanc-Mesnil.
