I’ve had this vague idea for the orchestral piece kicking around my head for a few days. Title to be ‘Fear of Falling’ and thinking along the lines of quarter-tone falling glisses (if a quarter-tone slide counts as an actual gliss) in the flutes. Anyway, this evening I managed to get down an idea for how to start it and the basic structure of the piece. It’s still not actual notes, and I don’t know how it will pull together, but it’s a concrete idea and I think could be effective and interesting for the performers. Now trying to get inspiration for the actual sound of the thing. Listening to Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3.
