Mirrors composed by Kaija Saariaho
Written for Flute and Cello
Includes 1 SCORE ONLY
Mirrors is a piece written originally for the CD-rom Prisma dedicated to my music. In the context of hte CD-rom, the user can build and play his own version of Mirrors, by combining pre-defined fragments. Because it was written for this purpose, the piece is built in such a manner that it can be reconstructed in multiple versions. The fragments of the game are the passages separated with a double bar.
The existing score is my own version of Mirrors, but musicians are welcome to construct their version of it. They should, anyway, try to follow the ideas I had about musical mirrors: there should always be a mirror in one or several of the following musical dimensions: rhythm, pitch, instrumental gesture, or timbre.
