From the Publisher

Timbral Winds refers to the unique and varied sounds that can be made on the alto flute as well as the Japanese Shakuhachi flute. This piece uses a combination of techniques from traditional Japanese folk music as well as ancient Greek music as they share a common root in the tetrachordal arrangements of their 'scale' patterns.

Timbral Winds also refers to the beautiful breeze that flows through my flat in the summer as I write music. In Greece the north wind in the summer is called µe?t?µ? (meltemi) which helps the summer feel lovely despite the heat. These winds, however, can also bring destruction.
