Composed in 2007, Metamusic is based on fragments from This Lunar Beauty, one of the composer's very early songs. These transformed passages are heard in the slow sections of Metamusic.

In contrast, most of the piece is fast and with colourful displays between the flute and the piano. At times both instruments extend their timbres into percussive-like sounds; the flute with key clicks and the piano with drumming on the lid of the instrument.
