"The title refers to the effect produced by tiny motivic fragments which make up the work. These are repeated over and over, transformed through being placed in a different context each time. I chose the two pairs of instruments for their strongly contrasted character, as I have always been interested in the drama of opposites. The ‘cool’ flute and passionate cello provide the lyrical melodic element and the gentle harp and agile vibraphone the harmonic and colouristic one, though sometimes these roles are reversed."
