Flute has always been to me an important instrument. Laconisme de l'aile, my second piece for a solo flute was started in Freiburg and finished in Paris in 1982.
As starting points I had ideas about blending the rhythms of speech and timbres of breathing into more traditional flute expression.

The text fragments are borrowed from Saint-John Perse's Les Oiseaux, Birds, and the title refers to birds, meaning something like 'the tersenes of a wing'.

I had in my mind, despite of bird song, above all the different ways birds fly, winning the gravity, crossing the sky. The solo flute draws these lines into acoustic space.
