Piece underway

Well, actually, it’s been underway for a while – I just haven’t been posting. Things got a little overwhelming there for a bit, culminating in the recent death of djelibeybi’s uncle, which rather hit me for six, but I’m gradually clawing back to what reality ought to be rather than what it actually is. The piece I’m working on is for 5 flexible wind instruments (flexible instrumentation, that is, not bendy flutes!) and piano, which I hope may prove suitable for this year’s London New Wind Festival. I’ve been reading a bunch of Kandinsky books for it, which have been mostly interesting (the beginning of Concerning the Spiritual in Art did seem to rather rate the term ‘twaddle’ though) – not entirely sure how they’re relating yet, if at all, but one has to start somewhere.
