    FLOW IMPRINTS, for violin & piano [2016]

    The piece aspires to catch the fleeting image of a fluid surface - like the surface of a river or a creek - by “taking 3D imprints” of it as it flows (‘Flow Imprints’).
    The structure of the piece is based on a mathematical model of catastrophe theory, controlling intensity, pitch and timbre (the latter in terms of levels of timbre distortion), thus producing sketches / textures of the ‘imprints’ as entities out of time. Then time and the rest of musical parameters are manipulated ‘freely’, aiming to support the creation of a meditative atmosphere and to promote aspects of the whole experience of observing fluidity: different states, flow intensities and qualities, different angles and ways of touch or refractions of light on the liquid surface.
