A full moon is revealed by parting clouds — silhouetted against its silvery light is a flock of black bats, chasing flurries of moths and other flying insects of the night. The night air might be still, but there is activity on the wing; thousands of beating wings; individuals following separate flight paths.
Night Fliers attempts to capture this scene; flowing, languid figures in much of the instruments seem to follow their own logic, carrying their own destinations while still contributing to the scene as a whole. The textures of the piece are built up from constantly moving states; there is a relentlessness to the texture, but also a lightness; an airiness. The piece should never feel static, but elasticity of tempo can be observed where appropriate; this piece is not meant to be performed within a well-defined construct of a tempo, but rather, it can ‘breathe’ in and out where it needs to.
