Leg (2020)

for solo flute

Leg is a portrait, though it would be best not to disclose its subject.

The impetus for the piece was a need to channel some long-held frustration felt by many in the community, myself included. This frustration resulted in what is essentially an 'inside joke' between friends.
It is partly based on some unfinished pre-compositional material given to
me by a friend who briefly studied composition in 2017, as well as the John Jacob Niles song ‘Little Black Star’.
