Flute and live electronicw. Composed for Jos

This chaotic intermingling of processed flute and
vocal sounds muses over the inanity of chatter.
Babbling radios and TVs, speaking in tongues,
threats of war, peace talks, talks about talks....
All sounds are triggered and manipulated in
performance by audio input from the flute, and
MIDI controller devices.
The sound-generators are gibbering chatterboxes.
Their whispers, grunts and prattles at first
appear only at the behest of the performer, but
gradually absorb him as the piece develops.Live
