Written for flutist Alastair McDiarmid at the 1982 Cambridge Music School, and premiered there the following year. This work utilises a wide range of contemporary flute techniques including blowing through the instrument, harmonics, flutter tonguing and various rates of vibrato. Certain intervals and melodic motives bind the piece together, in addition to the 'pitch bending' of the note C# which functions as a tonal centre.
