From the Publisher
'Rekindle' continues Michel van der Aa's series of solo pieces in which the composer explores the changing perspective between live sound and playback music and the dissolution of boundaries of these two 'identities'. A dialogue develops in 'Rekindle' which is controlled by ear or pre-notated signals during the performance and virtually rekindles the tonal material of the instrumentalist with the playback music and vice versa. Rhythmic pulsating in the playback music forms the basis of an increasingly virtuoso throwing back and forth of the tonal gestures; at its climax, the electronics gain the upper hand, driving the flute into a flurry of hectic outbreaks.
