Breath, Tongue, Fingertips is a work for solo flute, written in the Autumn of 1995. The piece is an exploration of emotional contrasts in intimacy and distance, action and stillness. Plus, as the title might suggest, the physicality of playing the flute is part of my inspiration: Touching the instrument, breathing voice into it, and articulating musical ideas through colors and lines of its sound.
