Program Notes
Haiku for C Flute is the first in a planned suite for the Flute family, of which can any selections may be played in any order. In this I seek to apply the haiku form to musical form, looking at both proportion and the characteristic haiku "flip", in which the subject switches. These two subjects and their juxtaposition form the basis of a haiku poem. This particular one is inspired by the evocative tradition of death haiku. The flip in this piece is therefor the birth and death of a musical idea. I wrote this piece to workshop with Meg Griffith in a few days at the Texas New Music Festival 2023.
