Mobile III: Vertical Foliage (2018) – 2'

Mobile III: Vertical Foliage is based on Alexander Calder’s mobile titled “Vertical Foliage,” and is the third in a series of pieces I have composed based on Calder’s mobiles and dedicated to flutist Robin Meiksins. This is the first one for piccolo, and takes advantage of the piccolo’s exceptionally high fluidity and ease of playing whistle tones to convey the sweeping arc of dark shapes in Calder’s mobile.
