Abstract

Quantaform Series is a cycle of 20 short pieces for Flute, designed as a partnership between performer and architectural acoustics. Each piece is written with the effects of a particular type of space in mind, where the choice of acoustic has influenced patterns of melodic line and rhythm. The title comes from the approach Field has taken to form. There is no repetition or redundant material: when each movement has made a concise statement in sound, it stops. Quantaform Series was originally composed in 2013 and a version was recorded by Jos Zwaanenburg. The score was subsequently completely revised and edited, creating this new version of the work. This 2019 edition is however the first publication of the manuscript of the piece.
