ABOUT

CLOOP is a trio for alto flute, musical saw and percussion. It is predominantly in an almost improvisatory vein, with the flute and percussion adorning the long cantilena of the musical saw with arabesques that exude a hint of orient.al colour. The musical saw’s naturally sinuous lines, sliding from one note to the next, are complemented by a considerable degree of rhythmic freedom in the other instruments. In a subtle but judicious contrast to the prevailing improvised character, the musical saw’s lines are occasionally doubled by the other instruments, resulting in moments of crystal clarity clothed in unexpected timbres.
