    ORIGAMI with Black Birds - for solo flute (2014/2016)
    Following the muster offered by the singing of a black bird, the third piece of the ORIGAMI Cycle has been composed as a continuous melody that carries characteristics such as motivic and rhythmical ingenuity in the frame of an elastic tempo which allows to the player a certain freedom of performance.
    Made, re-made, un-bound, the many angled and asymmetrical origami-like plies generate an ever reinvented, expositive music, having a merely serene sound that is here and there heaved through dynamic episodes. A special attention has been paid to timbre/instrumental colors and effects that are seen in this piece both as a trait of contemporaneous music, and a signature of Nature. (Camen Maria Cârneci)
