And Burn Like The Bird Into Eternity for Bass Flute and Electronics


  • Interesting, worth a look

From the Publisher

og brenna eins og fuglinn inn í eilífðina…(2018) - Lilja María Ásmundsdóttir
(and burn like the bird into eternity...)
for bass flute and electronics

The piece og brenna eins og fuglinn inn í eilífðina… was written in the Spring 2018 for Berglind María Tómasdóttir. It is based on a poem from the composer’s dream. The poem reflects the loss of someone dear to the narrator and how the transformation of the internal world of a human can evolve from sorrow, fear and loss to complete tranquility. The underlying theme is how certain words and certain sounds have the ability to transform the state of the human mind. The intimate sounds of the voice, breathing, whistle tones and words create a dreamlike state of being where not everything makes sense. The flutist and the electronics sculpt an abstract narrative, reflective of the atmosphere present in the dream.

Performance duration (approx): 12'30''

Difficulty guide: 9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
