Cycling for amplified flute with reverb (2009) was commissioned for the flutist Mario Caroli, as part of a project titled L’Arsenal wants you!, and premiered in Venice. The score was published by Ars Publica Musical Editions. The piece made it to the final of the 2014 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition and the Flute New Mu-sic Consortium Composition Competition. Its compositional procedure is based on “from sound to sound” structures and transformations of strategies of association between them.
