Four Kinds of Impersonal Relationships
Work no. 248
This is another satellite piece of The Sea, the Dog, and the Bird, the other two being the piccolo and flute duet A Confession and the 25-minute long flute solo A Spell Against Air). It's an extended transcription of the first movement of the original: I broke the music down into four sections, and had fragments of each section go through two consecutive transpositions, the intervals being different for each section. Some rise and fall, some only fall; sometimes it's only fragments that get transposed, other times it's practically the entire section – hence the title.
