'Complexification'

I rather liked that fwiw .. sounds crepuscular, post Berg-ian (?)

Good work. Some really sweet chords in there!

Another spurt of inspiration and a bit of reworking yielded this:

For Alto Flute alone

alto, yes? the score seems to say "contralto"

music for flute is never notated with leger lines below the staff ....

Nice piece.

Thanks Karl! In Spanish we call the alto "contralto" and the score is in concert pitch.

Got it!  You'll want a transposed "score" for the player!

After some time trying, I've come up with a new set of ideas to play with, to be developed later.

I've been trying out diversifying my styles, the goal of which can be read in the "If you are a composer (...)" thread https://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,31120.0.html

In attempting to maintain motivic unity and variety but regain clarity, this rather diatonic image emerged which then I thought some of you might like.
