Maria Nury Polaina, Flute
This single movement piece was composed for flutist María Nury Polanía. Built upon a dialogue between discernible and non-discernible materials, Fuente explores the instrument’s timbral possibilities, incorporating the performer’s breathing and other physiological sounds.
The title, unrelated to the music, honors Marcel Duchamp’s famous artwork Fountain.
