Prior to composing Foundry, I chose to approach the flute in its fundamental visual form, that of a metal pipe with holes in it.

Within the framework of an evolving set of intervals, a limited number of gestures melt, fold, dissolve and blossom into each other using very simple methods in transit. (PS)
