00:00 / 05:18

Colours of Memory explores various contrapuntal variations based on the flute's opening two bar pattern (bars 7 & 8). This two bar pattern, with its implied syncopation, was transcribed from a Garage Band royalty free library archive of instrumental audio samples. 

 

As well as utilising invertible and retrograde counterpoint, the work capitalises on implied counterpoint as a result of the timbral interplay with the other instruments.  Colours of Memory can be heard as a set of contrapuntal variations based on the opening flute passage quotation.

The recording provided is a demo version using Note Performer samples.
