When working with young music student in the field of contemporary music, one often encounters a sort of bewilderment regarding the aesthetic and sounds typical of 20th century avant-garde music. This piece was composed for a group of young music students as a part of a contemporary music workshop I was invited to teach, in collaboration with the contemporary music festival Klangwerkstatt. Each miniature lasts between 45 to 60 seconds and captures an element, playing technique, or a moment which communicates with the language of contemporary music.
