|Instruments||flute and alto flute (optional)|
This piece was written in 2011 for Primavera's 30th anniversary gala project, Crossing Borders.
Nancy Ruffer helped advised on the technical adventures in flute sound which is important to the piece. The extended techniques are described in the performer's notes.
The piece in performance was first accompanied by stunning photographs of the magical Lincoln Pond, taken by the composer and her sister in law, Janet Hadingham. Janet is a Fabric Artist, and her approach to the mesmerising images of the Lake was to photograph the details like abstract designs. Julia's photos evoked the mirroring reflections, the architecture of trees, the dramatic shadows of woodland bordering the lake. These images were projected during the performance.
However the idea of the piece is to create the painterly experience of the landscape in sound.
There are 6 movements:
1. Reflecting 2. Mirroring 3. Burning 4. Whistling Breath 5. Rippling 6. Leaving
