The word "purinjiti" means "message stick" in the Tiwi language (Aboriginal Australian) - I have adopted this word as a title for this atmospheric piece inspired by ideas of the hot arid outback of central Australia. The solo instruments are flute and euphonium. The didgeridoo part is not notated specifically (it is just shown as one note) since it is intended to be an improvisation depending on the skills and inspiration of the player. The string parts are a sort of continuo, with the harmonies becoming more and more complex as the heat of the day increases. The part for sticks is intended to be a simple ostinato, but if the player wishes to improvise, s/he is welcome to do so.
