    An idea came to my head, that if you played around with the parts in slightly different meters, tuplet values, or cycles (more polyrhythmic, kind of like Boulez's San Maitre), and time the cycles to converge sometimes like in those sustained notes together, it could achieve an added dimension. You have a more singular pulse, currently, and the music suggests a certain freedom to me beyond that single pulse (even though I think you already staggered the beats sometimes with pauses, sustains or different meters for the parts together as a whole).

    Just composed something in a similar vein to that last work. Faster and a bit more complex, no tuplets though.

    Flute, Alto Flute, Horn

    Sadly no. I find it hard to compose for piano.

    I find the voices a bit hard to follow and inconsistent. You have a string of smaller intervallic changes, then some large leaps in different directions, and voices crossing abruptly. I think maybe it's the constantly varying direction of different voices lines, which makes it not clear whether it's expanding or contracting.

    ^^^^I liked it's expressive power in places. I'd say the bowings could be better thought out, certainly in relation to the dynamics and hairpins, but what is there does give a sense of what is required of the music and the player, who will go on to alter bowing as he/she sees fit.

    My criticism would be that although there is melodic invention, there is no other idiomatic invention. Do you think you where led by sample limitation?
