Voices of the rainforest is a loose representation of a day in the life of the rainforest. This work came about as a result of my life-long fascination and love for nature. A recording of actual sounds of insects, barking frogs, birds, and the singing of natives of the Papua New Guinea rainforest was the final inspiration for this work. It consists of five movements:
II. Sago gatherers
III. Evening rainstorm
IV. Voices of ‘inside’ night
V. Night spirits.
The slow movement (Voices of the night) uses both the alto flute and the regular flute. However there is a version for regular flute only.
