(for wind trio, 2002)
Cirrus, Cirrocumulus and Cirrostratus are all names of cloud formations to be found in the upper region of the Troposphere. In this musical context they form a trilogy of pieces based on the same underlying compositorial idea. Cirrus or Cirro- is latin meaning a lock of hair. That is: individual hair put together in a collective bundle. Thus, all the pieces including Cirrocumulus attempt to create a balance between individual and collective behavior, where each individual voice brings forth the same musical material but always in slightly different ways.
Cirrocumulus was commissioned by Ensemble Recherche.
