Le Sabbie Dure is a new encyclopaedic work for Contrabass flute, ensemble and live-electronics.

The solo flute is equipped with miniature microphones placed inside the tube, which amplifies the inner world of the instrument. This work explores the acoustic qualities of multiple microscopic articulations produced on the instrument and their plastic instrumentation in juxtaposition to the ensemble. The composition is inspired by the Charyn Canyon in Kazachstan, with its beautiful coloured mountains. The work has been composed for the Viennese collective The Black Page Orchestra.

Premiere performance: September 11, 2021 – TivoliVredenburg – Gaudeamus Festival
