Duration: ca. 6′
Instrumentation: fl, cl, a. sax
Composed for the 2011 soundSCAPE festival


Tercets, expanding is a trio composed for the 2011 soundSCAPE festival in Maccagno, Italy. The piece is structured as a set of musical “tercets”,  gradually increasing in length so that the second tercet is twice the length of the first, the second three times as long, and so forth. Towards the end, the tercet becomes so long that the first segment of one is the complete opening tercet.
