Programme Note:
Flutists are to be positioned around the hall or space. There are 3 groups of any number of flutes. Each plays the exact same material but slightly out of time from the others therefore creating a blurred effect. Group 1 (piccolos and flutes) performs a 2 minute melody, Groups 2 and 3 answer after this first statement of the melody with jet whistles, slowly taking more time until the end. Group 1 repeats the melody again, after a minute rest, over the jet whistles for the last 2 minutes.
