own pace (amnesia 3)
for flute (also bass fl) and doublebass
 dur. 11’ca.
Pace in english means rhythm, step, velocity, stride.
Flute and doublebass proceed together continuously coding and recoding a basic and recognizable material which represents a fragment survived from “something forgotten”.
I’m interested in this process of re-codification where the fragment which has not been lost is worked and re-worked through its reduction or explosion, its duplication or deviation.
Differently from an old deteriorated manuscript in which the recoding process would help completing and reconstructing the missing data, in own pace the reconstruction of what is missing is not important, what matters is the direction towards it: the two instruments proceed letting their pace be both their journey and destination.
