“Serial Moods” for flute and piano (1999)
As part of the general cleaning associated with moving house I found this piece as an incomplete sketch on paper. I typeset and completed it. Although it began life as a serial (12 tone) piece, it quickly moves away from serialism. This piece also demonstrates that a piece can be (partly) serial without being atonal.
