Flash point

BACK TO LISTING

Concert

piece for violin, cello, flute, clarinet, piano and electronic

The Flash point is the lowest temperature at which it can vaporize to form an ignitable mixture in air.

Flash point is the decisive moment when the fire could catch; when everything is possible. I am interested if that special moment; that little moment when we become invincible, when our dreams become possible, or when everything could collapse and become a nightmare…

The structure of this piece follows the progression of a fire which is divided in four steps: birth, rise, constituted fire and the weakening (embers). Find yourself where the flash point is…
