Declaration of Trust (2013)

South American pan flutes are among my favorite folk instruments and it was a pleasure to compose music for such instruments — even though the piece has nothing in common with folk music. The score instructs the performer to provide a melody of their own. Each note then becomes four bars of highly ornamented music based on that note. Seven of these four-bar segments are given, one per each note of the C major scale.
