Robert Duncan Scorah - The Wings of Isis

The piece is a duet for flute and Yamaha SY99 synthesiser. The 'frequency modulation' generated electronic voices are meant to extend the timbral and harmonic characteristics already inherent in the flute and voice part, throwing up a kind of 'etheric double' or dreamworld counterpart.

The piece moves from a meditative and introspective opening section, including vocalised sounds by the flautist, through a more turbulent central episode to a melodic and sometimes almost sentimental ending.
