Superscriptio
Composed by Brian Ferneyhough
For solo piccolo
Published by C.F. Peters Corp.

Preface:
      The sound of any extremely high or low instrument tends, at least for me, to evoke associations with borders, boundaries, and with whatever lies beyond. Thus, in this little one-movement composition, I attempted to reflect these sensations in such a way as to suggest the fleeting sketching-in of the brittle outline, the trace without dimensions representing some ultimate 'inside of the outside', itself never to be captured in sound.
      Formally, Superscriptio is built up of interlocking observations of a dense network of precomposed metric and proportional relationships. Notable, perhaps, in this connection is the introduction and extensive employment of such unusual bar-lengths as 3/10, 4/24, 5/20, etc. Variations in texture and momentum are achieved by means of distortion of the complex patterns created by the mobile juxtaposition of such values, as well as by the gradual de-synchronisation of bar-length gestural shaping, dynamic levels and rhythmic density. 
      The composition was written during the latter months of 1981 at the requst of Roberto Fabbriciani, to whom it is dedicated.
– Brian Ferneyhough
