Branches Reaching (2016) is a set of miniatures for flute and piano based on photographs. Each miniature draws a photograph out of its transience and tries to recreate its living state. The experiment fails however; it is found that transience is in fact, the only thing that is permanent.

Many of the transitions in Branches Reaching are intentionally brief and under-prepared. The performers should seek to capture the fleetingness of the various moments, and allow the moments to slip through and by one another. In addition, at times the meter obscures itself, or reveals itself to be something it didn’t predict itself to be.

The flute part is written for a standard open-hole, B-foot flute. The part uses a number of multiphonic fingerings, which are published as they appear on the flute part. Many of the multiphonic fingerings use partially-closed, or vented holes.
