Work no. 192
This is one of the satellite pieces of Many Pink Butterflies, derived from that work's Solo V. Each solo in MPB is about a minute long, and explores a single compositional technique. A satellite piece based on a solo develops that technique further. In this case, the technique was inversion: in the original solo, a melody was simply followed by its inversion. In Juhannusaatto two different groups of melodies follow the same procedure. There are three sections, each followed by a solo for one of the instruments of the ensemble: like a miniature Many Pink Butterflies.
