Red Flame Blue Flame (2003)

Red Flame Blue Flame (2003) was commissioned upon winning the Apeldoorn Young composer meeting in 2003 to be premiered the following summer at the International Masterclass Series. Inspired indigenous Thai music, the piece is a depiction of the mercurial and hypnotic dance of a flame as it spats and sinks, twists and emerges in an ever changing seductive yet menacing way. Fragile and dangerous, warm and untouchable, the flame cannot be tied down.
