Momentum Studies

(2005, 9′)

Two movements for three flutes
For Brook Ferguson


Flute Trio


Momentum Studies (2005) contains two contrasting movements. Love is like a machine is rhythmic and pulsating, while Along these lines is calm and connected throughout, with only hints of intensity emerging from the even texture. The three flutes are intertwined in both movements, creating different melodies, rhythms and colors that move constantly among the three players.

Momentum Studies was commissioned by and is dedicated to the Golden Triangle Project, with special gratitude for Brook Ferguson in making this collaboration possible.
