Written at the 1986 Cambridge Music School and premiered there, this work utilises flute with 3 percussionists: C# crotale, one timpani, suspended cymbal, vibraphone 4 roto-toms. Two particular uses of glissando occur in the music - the flautist is called upon to execute a tremolo while overblowing to produce an upward rush through the upper harmonics; and the percussionist is asked to place the crotale upside down on the timpani head then to strike the crotale sharply and manipulate the timpani pedal - this causes the crotale pitch to fluctuate.
