3 instruments of different families

Programme note

Standing was commissioned and written in 1973 for Ensemble Ark, and premiered by this Japanese group the same year in Tokyo. The instrumentation is free, only subject to the restriction of “three instruments of different families,” and it has been played by many different instrumental combinations; In the premiere the combination was flute, marimba and piano. This work is one of my first compositions based on the idea of ‘Sen no ongaku’ (‘linear music’), music composed in such a way that the whole structure derives from a single melodic line.
