Wind Shear (1999)

Solo flute [8']
Commissioned and premiered by Bridget Douglas

les tornades tournent dans ma bouche
les ouragans rougissent s'il est possible mes lèvres
les tempêtes grondent à mes pieds
les typhons s'il est possible me dépeignent
je reçois les baisers d'ivresse des cyclones...

— from La voix de Robert Desnos, Robert Desnos

 

...so that she may lift closed eyes,
and nose as delicately the salt
of your coming
that was lately of the sea, the sea's groan,
and the festooned rocks, o East Wind

— from Importune the east wind, Hone Tuwhare
